Yesterday didn't start out so great. As I was getting ready for work my I could hear my 9 year old son getting ready for school. Then I heard what every Mom dreads....the sound of him throwing up! Not fun at all! Then my husband woke up...sick! I'm sure you all agree; husbands are much harder to take care of then the kiddos! Thankfully the little miss and the munchkin were feeling great. Sis went of to school, so at nap time guess what I worked on? Remember that Wacky Wing back Chair? I finished! Doing a happy dance right now!
Here she was in all her glory before: You can read how I acquired this beaut here.
I really tried to use all the pieces I removed as my pattern, and my goal was to re-use all the tack strips and other metal strip (not sure what it is). As I removed each piece I labeled them with a black sharpie and then used them for a pattern.
So have you ever reupholstered anything? Did you use cardboard for your edges as well? If you are going to ask me if I would do this again....give me sometime, let the soreness in my hands wear off. I probably will, you know me-I am a glutton for punishment!
Have a great day!
