There are three new girls in Upholsteryville and they mean business. Janet (another Janet) learned how to make welt cord in about 5 minutes and is already putting together two boxed and corded cushion covers to be stuffed fluffily and placed on her cane back chairs. She has two more staple laden chairs so she wisely purchased weight lifting gloves to protect her hands while tearing down.
Tracey found a tufted cane back chair with nice little brass wheels to reupholster. Where did she find it? Out in the furniture stack in my garage. She even found a large remnant of fabric in my stash to cover it. Right here she's marking where the buttons will be attached in the diamond tufting.
Mother-to-be Anne is working diligently on a tufted back, fully upholstered rocker she is covering in white matlasse' (I know) for her nursery. She and Janet found the chair at Goodwill. It's a La-Z-boy brand but doesn't have a flip up leg rest. The nifty thing about La-Z-boys is that they come apart in upholstered component parts.
Anne was eyeing the very same type of chair at Pottery Barn Kids for over $800.00. She's going to love the fact that she reupholstered this herself and saved a bundle while having a great time doing it. BTW-She said she had never sewn before. She said she gets her creativity from her crafty mom. Aren't moms grand?!
Watch out Monday Night Upholstery!
