so, it’s not as good as I would have liked it to be, it is a little looser on the left side than the right.  But hey, it’s my first chair and I’m not going to let myself be upset that it’s not perfect.  It’s not as easy as I thought it would be, but I think after doing a few it will be much easier.  

I’m excited for the next one!  (who knows how long that will be though…)

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!
