Our new house is our new obsession, and I admit I'm completely addicted to KSL classifieds looking for deals on awesome items that we'll need for our new house. We haven't accumulated much furniture (junk and textbooks, yes... furniture, no), so I've been looking on KSL for things that we need and that also could provide me with opportunities to learn new things. Behold... my first re-upholstery project!
BEFORE: $10 Rocking Chair from a lady in AF.
AFTER: New fabric, new batting, a bit of sanding, & 2 coats of spray paint
After all this, I decided the seat needed MORE padding. So I bought a square of chair foam and redid the bottom, which will be much more comfy (not pictured because I took the chair apart again after these photos so that it could be stowed under the bed until we move).
The pictures make it look better than it is :) I'm definitely an amateur - there's lots of wrinkles and puckers around the edges, but it will work, and it was my first project of this type.
(It seems like a few of my friends have been re-upholstering stuff lately, but I promise I decided to do this way before even reading about other people's crafty pursuits).
