Chair reupholstery

Do you work on more than one project at a time? I do, but usually not 2 big projects at once. However, we're on a mission. My sister in law arrives in less than 12 hours and will be here for one week, we gotta make hay while the sun shines, you know what I mean??? I have been doing some prework so when she gets here we can shoot out of the gate!

This chair is getting a little facelift, it looks funny without the legs. I always forget to take a picture before I get started. :)
Have you always wondered what your furniture looks like under the fabric? My handy work, I removed a bajillion staples!!!
It only took 3 little tools, really I didn't use the scissors much so I guess it took 2. And no, that isn't the bajillion staples, of course I thru those away BEFORE I took the picture! Sigh, one day I will learn to take pics as I go. Keep checking back to see our killer skillz!

It's gonna be great! And it has eight-way hand-tied springs, so it is a better quality piece, and worth the effort and expense of re-doing. Can't wait to see your finished product!

Hey Laura,
Your blog shows a new post on my sidebar but when I click on it, it says it doesn't exist. Maybe you removed it. Just stopping by to see what you've been up to.
Have a great day!
