Chair with front arm broken?

This post goes with a shout-out to Donna Berglin, my former intern who is now living and working in Portland, Oregon.  I miss you and your smiling face, Donna!!!

We did a set of three covers for this furniture.  Guess which piece had a front arm broken off?  You can't.
After the chair cover was cut, we copied it for both pieces, and stuffed the cover with dacron where the broken arm was.

Voila!!!  it was the chair on the right in the first picture.  Only the chair owner (and us) would ever know.  Not rocket science, I guess, but I was pretty proud of our near solution to the problem.
