That's phenomenal!  I'm so impressed!

Where did you learn to do upholstery?  I'm getting ready to start my first project (redoing my grandmother's mid-century modern divans) and have no idea really of where to begin.  Can you give us any hints or books or references?

Thanks!!!

Thank you all. I did not take classes, read books or anything else. I just put the fabric back on the way I took it off. Used the old fabric as pattern pieces for the new fabric.  Also wrote on the old fabric as to back of arm vs. front of arm piece etc... But most of all there was a lot of fear and I just had to jump in and do it. I will say a good staple gun is a must!!!!
Thank you again and if there is anything I can do to help you just post and will do the best I can.

You've inspired me!

I spent the whole afternoon deconstructing a ratty mid-century modern chair for my first upholstery project.  I can't hope for as beautiful as yours, but so far it's been a lot of fun!

Holy crap! That's amazing! Nice job! Did you ever curl up in a fetal position during the process, or are you as superhuman as you seem?Cheesy
I'd be scared to death to try something like that. Way to go!
