2 Chairs

Isn't she a beaut? We actually had 2 of these wonderful ladies. Let's face it, times are tough in this economy and these chairs were in some dire need to be redone or donated. The confidence level in my husband was way ahead of mine. So one day I got out the screwdriver, needlenose pliers and started.

No going back now! I wish I would have taken pictures of our process of putting the fabric back on her but we didn't. We ran into one hitch and ran out of our 13 yards of fabric when it was time to do the last cushion. Hence the name sew.rip.repeat. Our first project was not only a difficult challenge but we had to put a pattern on the fabric just to spice it up a little. So after 2 months of hemming and hawing, sewing and ripping we accomplished our end goal. Two beautiful chairs to sit in our livingroom.

I could have flattend out the cushion before I took the picture but oh well. Now time to start a couch!

I'm going out of my comfort zone and actually putting these 2 chairs in "The CSI Project" Upholstery Challenge. Since these 2 chairs were my very first project at upholstering I'm excited to let the world see my new chairs. If I knew now that I'd be doing this and even starting a blog I would have made sure I took more pictures. I guess people are just going to have to wait for the couch to be done to see more pictures (fyi ... almost done with that project). Thanks for stopping by!

I am visiting from CSIproject. Great job on the chairs. They turned out beautiful. Glad you stepped out of your comfort zone to share.

They look wonderful! I wanted to pick your brain-do you think its possible to slipcover a reclining sofa?? I'd so appreciate your thoughts on it. :)

Good job! I am trying to work up the nerve to get going on my little couch. It will be my first project too. However, you've inspired me to just dig in!
