So on to the Easy Breezy stuff! It seems I always have atleast one project in the making - for instance I have decided to try my hand a reupholstery. I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing, but I've been reading up on it and I think I can pull it off. Now, I have re-covered the seats of many a dining room chair before, but I've never tackled any thing big like a wingback chair! I've had this ugly chair for many years. It wasn't ugly when we got it, but after 18 years that's how it ended up. It wasn't new when I got it and its been sitting in my garage for the past four years so I figured what the heck, if I ruin it I'll take it to Goodwill. I actually checked into having it reupholstered but CHA-CHING! So I've taken the plunge on my own. Here is the ugly chair (along with a step ladder and a carpet remnant to add to the charm!).
There used to be buttons on the cushion, but three little boys later, they are nowhere to be found. I probably should have started with something easier that wouldn't require me to learn to make piping with double welt cording (I had never heard of such!), but I figure if I can pull off this chair everything else will be easy by comparison. Kind of like learning to drive a stick shift - if you can do that then driving automatic is Easy Breezy!
Okay, I've already gotten WAAAAY too long winded (be warned, this could be an issue!) so I'll hush now, but I will return with updated posts on the ugly chair! Thanks for visiting my blog and bear with me as I figure this thing out! :)
