>Wowzers! I love that fabric! Great job!!!
>You did an amazing job!!! I have a chair that I bought for $25 that is a dirty white. I want to reupholster it for my new craft room, but I've never reupholstered either. I think now after seeing this post I am going to give it a try!
>I'm not associated with either one of the following websites, but both of them have invaluable information regarding reupholstering. Go check them out!
http://www.diyupholsterysupply.com – Not only does he sell upholstery supplies for a fraction of what you'd pay at your local fabric stores, but he has video tutorials posted on his website. He takes the scary out of upholstery jobs!
http://www.charishumin.blogspot.com (Design Intervention) – girlfriend has a knack for reupholstering and has an eye for great fabrics. She also has tutorials for upholstering. VERY clear instructions and a definite must-read when planning for your first upholstery job.
I pored over the previous 2 websites for hours before tackling my first job. I turned the world's ugliest wingback setee into a truly awesome piece of furniture and have had people tell me that it's better than some professional upholstery they've had done.
Those are just my 2 cents worth of info and I pass this along to anybody looking to try their hand at it!
This chair featured? FABULOUS!
>wow fabulous job this is 1st time ever?????? my goodness girlie i think you found your talent!! love the material you picked just love it
>OK, you are hired!! I have 8 dining room chairs and 4 occasional chairs I need done, when can you pick them up? 😉
>I saw this fabric at Joann's on clearance, and now I wish I'd really picked it up. It would be perfect as outdoor pillows (even thought it's not outdoor fabric). But with all the chaos in the house right now, I can't focus on 'pretty' just yet. But this chair makes me want to get started NOW!
>Thank you all very much for the kind comments! I am a college student (finance major… sounds boring, i know!) so I am always looking for the cheapest possible way to do things. If any of you decide to try it yourself and need any advice, please feel free to email me or post a message on my blog, I will be glad to help!
Being the first time I attempted something like this, I researched techniques until my eyes were about to fall out of my head, I didn't want to mess up!
Melissa – Whenever you want! Haha. Id love to make a business out of it, but so afraid of the potential of failure!
Sarah – It IS outdoor fabric! well, indoor/outdoor, which is why i chose it. i figured it would be pretty hard to get dirty.
I can’t see the pictures, what can be wrong?
Maria, Looks like the post disappeared! Sorry about that, I added some links to similar content, hopefully that will help!
