Wicker sofa after

My brother found this tattered wicker sofa at the dump and asked me to bring it back to life for him.  I used outdoor fabric so it would hold up to years more of use.  As I took it apart I took photo along the way to use as a guide to rebuilding it.  I took it right down to the bare bones then replaced the old moldy padding and linings and following the lead of the oringinal, I hand sewed all the padding back in place.  Imagine, someone just threw it in the landfil!
