First Time Re-Uphostering!


So this chair came to me from my husbands cousin. Reupholster this please she said. Sure I said. Oh, NO! what have I done, I said when I uncovered it.
Very happy with how it turned out. I used the tutorials at Design Sponge to help me out for the iffy spots. Great resource on upholstering.
Don't be afraid of re-upholstering! Not crazy difficult just time consuming.

Use your table as your work bench. I just covered it with a large blanket and it was much easier to see everything.
