reupholstering an arm chair...
....can now be added to our accomplishments in life. Yay, us. I spotted this rattan chair during my thrift spree last week and just couldn't stop thinking about it, so we went back a few days later. I convinced Q that it was the chair of my dreams and that we could "easily" recover the thing, so it went home with us.
After hours of ripping off fabric, pulling out staples, and figuring out what the heck to do (like standing in the foam aisle at Joann's and wondering what density/thickness we're supposed to get and why it costs $40 a yard), we have finally finished covering the seat.
Now we "just" have to upholster the back (which is currently open), but for now I've draped one of our fluffy rugs over it and you'd never know - unless you sat in it of course. At least it looks pretty for now.
