Reupholstery

Everyone is always asking me about reupholstering and I always say the same thing: it’s doable but its more physical labor than anything. Well my cousin finally challenged me and I took the bait. She had a really comfortable lounge chair that she didn’t’ want to get rid of but she had recently re-decorated and it didn’t match the rest of of her stuff. ¬†When her mom (one of my earliest sewing inspirations! – pix on that later…) came up for a visit they did some measurements and ordered some distinctive black and white fabric that was gorgeous – I knew it would change the look of the chair completely (see before pix). I estimated that it would take about three evenings with us both working together to complete. In the end I was a little wrong but the chair proved to a bit more of a monster than we could have known until we took it apart. All in all it turned out beautifully, but we did end up having to order 3 additional yards of fabric.

  1. I think it was amazing how much Lori was able to change that chair
    and maybe I would like to learn how to do that, it was very inspiring!!

  2. I love the patterns you chose! How many yards of fabric did that chair take? What materials did you use? What type of fabric was that?
