And A Big Finish

Yeah, it was a big weekend. I finished the chair... back and seat cushions complete!
Can you believe this is the same chair as that Ugly Orange Chair?
What a great feeling! I really like how it turned out for my first reupholstery project. I learned a few "I'd do it differently next time" things, which is always a win in my book. It has earned a nice spot in my living room. Love it!

What a transformation. You've turned an ugly duckling into a sweet swan, and just think - most people would have just thrown it out and bought a new one. You saved it from landfill and saved money and had fun!

That is fabulous. I love the mix of the paint and the fabric. It reminds me of a New England beach house.

Oh wow, that turned out so well! Do you have the bug now? Are you going to move on to another re-upholstery project?

Now that's a great piece of work!! It's had a massive overhaul, and it really does look great, especially that fabric/color with the white trim. I'd be so proud of myself if I were you! And definitely try your had at more projects - you have the knack.
