It's hard garbage day here in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne. For those not in the know, hard garbage day is when householders put all the large items they want to throw away out on the nature strip for the council to come and collect. There are fridges, chairs, old lamps, couches, mattresses, desks, computers.... almost anything you can think of.
For a week or so now, the house around the corner from my apartment has had a pair of white vinyl armchairs out front.
I think I want one. But I'd want to revamp it. I imagine it made more mushy with more padding, and covered in a brown/orange soft-to-touch sort of fabric. And I'd be reupholstering it myself.
Should I do this, do you think? I've never reupholstered anything before - but it doesn't look hard on those home renovation programs. Anyone got an idea of the cost in $AUD? Or of how I should go about doing this? I have to decide before morning, because I think the garbage collectors are coming tomorrow..... I need to be encouraged - it's such a big project!
