On-Line Upholstery Tutorial

I won't be able to take my favorite upholstery class this Fall. I know, after I told all of you how I would "see you there". Tuesday evenings are just too difficult for my family schedule. Since sharing ideas, fabric choices and the overall creative process is what I love about the class; how about an on-line class (tutorial)?

Do you have an upholstery project you have been putting off? Would you like to give it a try? Are you already skilled at upholstery and would love to contribute tips or suggestions? Let's see if we can do this together.


Here is my project

this Craigslist chair



It has beautiful carved detailing




a nice profile



cute metal feet



and a nice curved back

Hi Buster!



Here are my thoughts:

Every Wednesday, starting on September 28th, I will show you "the next step" on my project. If you e-mail me a photo, I will post it and help you with your project...if you need help. If you have any tips or suggestions, I will gladly post those as well. Together, we will tackle upholstery.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Tomorrow, I will show you the fabric and tools I plan on using.

Hope to see you then.

Oh snap. Wicked awesome chair. Too weenie to try real upholstery. If it involves anything other than a staple gun and square corners I fear I am useless. I shall be watching from the sidelines, Can't wait.

OK, I'm in! I've decided that my fabric stash is not nearly as big as yours so I will shop for some fabric this week. I want to recover a simple little footstool I just bought at Homesense last week to go with a chair by the fireplace.
I dont have the compressor. I have cave man tools but Im willing to use them:)
