First, reupholstery is a funny looking word. I had to look it up to make sure I had it right. Second, that is what this post is about.
We have the Mid Century-ish chair that we really like. In fact I think it was the very first piece of furniture we ever bought. Welcome to adulthood, where you actually buy things and your living room set isn’t entirely made up of dumpster dive finds. I think it was all of $50 and we still had to put it on lay-a-way.
The fabric was shot and in true Countryside Lane fashion we decided to do it ourselves. We had a book, what more do you need? Well, besides fabric and other materials. Ends up the book was a P.O.S and didn’t tell us much. We made sure to stay true to the pattern of the original material that we carefully skinned and we winged it where we had to. On top of new fabric we also redid the wood.
Below is out story of our first reuphols…silly word. By they way, we still dumpster dive.
