Where should I start? Upholstery!

Hmmm, my first blog post…ever. Where should I start? I’m thinking I will share a recent project that was probably one of the most challenging I have ever tackled.

A few years ago, my sister-in-law and brother were getting rid of an old chair they had in their garage. It was a cute old chair with character, so I thought I would keep it and try my hand at upholstery. Since they were just going to throw the chair away, I figured I had nothing to lose. I also secretly noted that since it rocks it would be perfect for a baby’s room. 🙂

Best tips for upholstery:

  1. Do not be afraid, you can do it!
  2. Take pictures and document every step of the way. Seriously, you can’t take too many pictures.
  3. Clearly label each piece as you remove it, write where the piece goes, which side is up/down, left/right.
  4. Go for it!

More to come!
