My new obsession…

on February 9, 2011

This new obsession, is upholstery.  Now I have recovered lots of chairs over the years, but now I am trying to move on to really re-upholstering a chair.

Now I am not a perfectionist, so that really works in my favor with this 😉 I try to do things well, but perfect, is um a bit out of my reach.

First up a table and 6 chairs, I picked up for my son Kyle. His girlfriend loves 50’s retro style.  They have some blue Ikea tables. So we painted the table powder blue and the chairs white.  I found some red and white polka dot fabric for the chairs.

Here is the chair before.

And the after 🙂










Here’s a picture of the chair











The total investment 150.00.. pretty cute for a few cans of spray paint and time..

Thanks for checking out my BLOG. I’m not a great writer, or amazing seamstress..not the most creative lady on the planet.. but I am me:) and this is my blog
