Week 10: Reupholster a Chair

Wow! Week 10. I'm having a blast. Thanks for being here.

It's odd how the luck of the draw works sometimes. Just a few days ago I was hoping that this project would be picked out soon!

I found this chair last spring at a second hand furniture store. This place not only sells great furniture, but they partner with organizations in the city to make homes for people who are transitioning out of homelessness. I believe I paid $30 or $35 and believe it really was a great find.

This chair is super comfy. So comfy in fact that I took a Sunday afternoon nap in it this week. But as much as rose pink fills me with nostalgic memories of my gramma, it's time for a more modern and youthful look.

Why I want to make this: I've never recovered an upholstered piece of furniture before but have bought fabric before in a valiant attempt. And when I bought this chair, it was with the presumption that I would recover it one day. I just lucked out that the chair I bought didn't completely clash with the rest of my room.

Ideas & Inspirations: Months ago I had purchased some dark grey fabric to recover it. Now that it is several months later, I'm thinking of ideas to jazz it up a bit.

What I intend to do with said project: This chair sits in the corner of my room next to the window. I look forward to many more naps in this chair. Or perhaps I will take up blogging in my chair? Maybe I shouldn't associate the 2 activities...
