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!
