that time I decided to reupholster a chair.

Pinterest.  Will the insanity ever end?  I’ve decided to reupholster some chairs.

The wooden chair I’m not worried about at all.  I got it from the Habitat ReStore for 12 bucks.  It’s going to be white with some dope navy fabric on the seat.  I’m hoping to sell it to some beachy beach house people in VA Beach.

Now, this other chair I got for 20 bucks at a neighbor’s yard sale.  I’m thinking I’ll keep this one to add a pop of color (coral) to my living room.  Also, because it will most likely be not up to selling standards.  I have all the tools now, the fabric, staple gun, tack puller, and I’ve read a bunch of tutorials.  I still need some double welting and a double welting foot to make the trim.  What I really need is some gumption and a little free time to start.

Did I have a psychotic break thinking that I could do the very time consuming project of reupholstery, when I can barely function at night?  After the kids are finally asleep all I want to do is veg on the couch and watch TV for a couple hours.  Burn a candle, eat some chocolate, go to my happy place.

I guess what I’m trying to say is- it might be awhile before you see any finished products.
