REUPHOLSTER! November 25, 2008

So I have been literally going crazy lately with nowhere for my creativity to go except into cooking, which is fun, but just not enough of an outlet for me!

I have been really wanting to learn how to reupholster so I have been searching craigslist for wooden chairs that have a padded seat or back (I don’t think I’m ready to reupholster anything bigger than that yet).  It has been kind of discouraging because I haven’t found anything for a long time.  But today and yesterday I found these!

I still need to pick them up but I am SO excited to do these!  Now I need to go pick our paint and fabric!  Then, I need to find someone who wants to buy them!  haha, I can’t very well have tons of crazy cool chairs around the house…or maybe I could?  

I’ll post pictures when they’re done and probably as they progress as well 😀 yay!

    I wouldn’t be so sure yet 🙂 we’ll see how they turn out 🙂 I’ll post pictures when they’re done. The sad thing is that the one on the left hasn’t emailed me back yet so I don’t even know if I can do that one 😦
    The other thing I was thinking of doing was getting like 4 mismatched chairs but painting and upholstering them the same colors/fabric (or similar) and then selling them as a set for a dining table…what do you think?

    I think that would be amazing! I love the old, random, redone look. Is there a name for it? :).
    My grandma had an awesome antique chair at her house this weekend and I thought of you.

    P.S. I have a friend who made a coffee table using an old window frame for the table part (with glass in it). Not sure how she did it, but that’s an idea.

    That’s super cool! I think that would be really cute!
