Today I tackled an upholstery project. This is my 4th and largest try at reupholstering. I didn't take any classes I just jumped right in and figured it out. The biggest tip I can give is to keep the old upholstery pieces as patterns for your new pieces and pay attention as you disassemble, so you will know how it was put together when you reupholster it.
Here is my $5 yard sale chair:
As I removed the old fabric I found that the foam padding had dissolved to a fine powder. Yuck! I needed a mask for this one.
After all my hardwork I thought a styled photo shoot in the street would be the most obvious thing I should do, since I was thrilled with my chair! (My neighbors surely think I am nuts!)
Yup I am in love with my own work!
