The Chair’s New Clothes- a short story

August 27, 2012

A while ago, I took an upholstery class at the local community college. It took about 4 months, but I was able to successfully upholster this old, sickly teal chair. Unfortunately, I was only able to finish one of the chairs during the class. I’ll finish the other one when I can successfully complete all of my Before you DIY questions. (Currently, the big hinderer is ‘Do I have the space to complete this project?’)
