My first re-upholstery project

I'm not sure when I began this project (I'm thinking last February). Any way I got two of these reclining wingback chairs from my mom. She was getting new furniture and was going to give these beauties to Goodwill. Of course, there was no way I was going to let her do that!!! I wanted those - but definitely needed to be updated! :)

So I spent about $70 on fabric and several several months working on this. Seriously, I should have picked an easier project for my first one - like a stool or dining room chair!

The only bad thing is that I inherited two of these chairs so the other one is just still sitting in my house, waiting! And I'm not in the mood to do it! :( Maybe I'll find motivation - this winter! :)

This is my next upholstery project:

    wow, I am here from the social blog hop and must say this is an amazing job! I have an old wing back that I would love to do but, for right now a white sheet will do! LOL

    I'm so jealous! I could never do this. What a great project, and a great job. The chairs look amazing!

    Stopping by from Follow Friday and so glad I found you! Now following so I can keep up with all the fun things you've got going on.

    Great job! My friend wanted to reupholster her couch so we learned to do it on youtube, go figure:) It seems daunting and is kind of a long process, but it is totally worth it. Love the chair!

    Hi, I'm trying to get all my followers back. My blog was hacked and I had to rebuild. I'm following you again, and could really use a follow on GFC. Thanks!
