Hello fellow Craftsters!

A few summers ago I pulled a beautiful chair out of the town trash pile with all the intentions of re-upholsterying it. Over winter break, my mom told me if I didn't do something with it, she was going to throw the chair out. This chair is honestly one of the prettiest I've ever seen and to get it for free just makes it better. I didn't get any before pictures so I had to steal one from Dailybooth where it is in the background (excuse my MySpace-esque pose).

So the chair was an ugly green olive-y crushed velvet/velour type fabric. I upgraded to a grey upholstery weight fabric that has a woody texture with little purple flowers and white stems all over it.

What I found from this is that re-upholstering is actually really easy.
