I used the rest of this week to finish up that upholstered chair I was working on over the weekend, and it looks amazing! I love the fabric, and it goes so much better in the room! The living room now has the grey loveseat that I recovered a while back, and three yellow chairs. I feel like I am getting closer and closer to having this place just right.
Next on my list is to make pillow cases to cover some bright red pillows I currently have on the loveseat. Now that I have recovered this red chair in yellow, I don’t think the pillows go with the room anymore.
When I think back on the two upholstering projects I have worked on, I realize that maybe I should have started with this one instead of the loveseat. This project went so smoothly, as the upholstery is very simple and basically a “slipcover” to begin with, so there was no stapling, hammering, or changing padding involved. If you ever consider re-upholstering any of your furniture, I recommend starting with something small and basic, it will help boost your confidence for your bigger projects!
Have you ever done any re-upholstering? What was your experience like? Did you start by dipping your pinky toe in the water, or did you dive in head first?
