hassock re-upholstery, part 1: demolition

hassock before upholstery

My hassock reupholstery began with the most fun part: demolition. My goal was to disassemble this guy in an intelligent way so I could remake it. I had to be careful, but since I would be starting over from scratch, I didn’t have to be too careful. That was a nice balance for me.

I started by removing the legs from the base. Each wooden leg was screwed into a metal plate, which was attached to the hassock’s base with 3 screws.
