Project du Jour

Here's the latest project that I can now check off my to-do list:

It only cost me:

Less than $50 for the material-the material needs to be upholstery weight type.
10 sore fingers
Lots of staples from the staple gun
2 sore shoulders
1 swear word
The first two.....1 1/2 hours.
The last four.....2 hours-the learning curve shortens.


So what do ya' think?

Oh, how do you find the motivation and energy? That is VERY beautiful!

Reno said...

Very cool. Glad you only used one swear word. Or was it one word used over and over again?

Momza said...

lub the fabric! Wish I was as brave to do that around here!

Very nice! Kassi was just saying that she wanted to learn to upholster...now she can talk to a person with experience.

They are gorgeous. I am surprised at the lack of swear words. Too bad you weren't around when we upholstered the couch umpteen years ago.

Ooh, I LOVE them. You did such an awesome job. This makes me want to recover my kitchen chairs.

Amy said...

I have a hope chest I would like to re-do..but I'm afraid to flub it up. It was a gift 10 yrs ago from my dad. Now I'm scared to do any damage to it cuz I adore it and dear old dad isn't here with us anymore.

Any particular tips or tricks youcould share?
