I have to laugh at myself because here I am thinking “Oh gee- it would be wonderful to learn how to re-upholster- then I could do this as a side gig and create beautiful things -UHHH – YEA RIGHT!! HELLO!! and BABY BYE!! LOL This is one lesson learned and it only took one class to learn it – “SHYT AIN’T EASY!”… .. Ok..now that I got that off my chest.. moving right along.. Let me refresh your memory of my forever project…
Looks simple right… (boy did this fool me).. but..Ok.. I finally had a spare weekend to sand the base of the chair.. the wood was so scarred and needed some attention. My goal was to make it look like this
Dream on….dreamer… Alarm clock went off and Time to wake up….
I sanded the best I could (I’ve got bad hands..)
This is a closer view of the wood
could you believe all these bangs and bruises. on this beautiful wood… smh.. HOW???
Re-staining was my intent then I realized.. I’d have to do a lot more sanding… so I opted for a new look..
Why not go GLAM!
It was a bold move to do that, but after seeing it with the fabric.. I think it was the best choice. I really like the new color and it’s going to give this chair a sleeker look and will enhance the fabric. It’s almost done.. I promise it’ll be finished before Christmas.. chuckles.. sike… no it’s going to be finished next week.. Yayyyyy!! So.. stay tuned….
