Guinea Pig

I am a little nervous to even post about this.  I am in the middle of reupholstering my other wing chair.  I am not making a slip cover, I am tearing it apart and recovering it.
 So far this chair is not like the video I was watching, so I am about ready just to go on my own instinct.  I am thinking that may not be a good thing to go by since I have never done a wing chair before.  
When I tore apart the wings, the sides, the arms and the wings were all one piece.  I am going to try cover it a different way and hope it looks good :)
So this is what is staring at me today.  
I am going to use drop cloth so there is no major money going into my guinea pig of an idea.  
Hubby is routing for me.  
What a pal!
So hopefully I will have a completed--good looking wing chair to share with you next week!  I will even share with you my failure of a chair if need be....

  6. Congrats! I often find myself staring at pics of Miss Mustard Seed's reupholstered pieces and thinking 'I could never do this'.

  7. You are so brave. Even though you didn't spend anything, if it was me I would be too afraid to tackle this project. Good luck and I am sure that it will be beautiful!!
