I found my arm chair for lovely $20 and I ordered the fabric online from Amy Butler for $9/yard I believe.
Since I had no clue, how to upholster a chair, I followed this tutorial. But first I spray painted the feet.
After many hours of de-upholstering (is that a word?), sanding, staining, sewing, stapling… my painstaking work is finally complete and this is how it looks, gorgeous!
But me, I am totally tired, no patience left, a blue finger (I hammered on it several times), the fabric was almost not enough, which put me on the edge of having a nervous break down, lol (what do you do, if you are missing 3 inches of fabric? You are trying to find any kind of yellow fabric in your house and end up cutting your $80 skirt apart to substitute the missing piece!).
So, what I’ve learned from this project? Well, upholstery is deffinately not my thing, I have way too less patience for that;-)my website.
