Here she is...



So...here she is. I just finished her yesterday, and boy did she give me a run for my money. But, she is finished and I feel relieved. It was my first crack at upholstering. You can read about it all day, but when it comes down to it...you just have to actually do it to learn. The laying out of the fabric (and keeping it there,) yep, not so easy as you might think. My hubby came out while I was doing it...saw fabric everywhere, saw my not so happy face, and wisely turned around and went back into the house. I can honestly say I wrestled with a chair now. I'm not sure who won. I think I did, but she got her licks in. I do like how she turned out for the most part. I have another one just like her to do, so I'll see if I learned anything on the first time around when I attempt the second. Here they are below...I have some gorgeous fabric for the second. I'll post her when I'm finished. So, if you like this little jewel enough to buy her...you can go here to take her home.

I just bought two chairs (sort of similar) that I want to reupholster! I was trying to read and learn about it (with lots of head scratching), but I think you have given me what I need to just jump in there and go for it! Thanks!!

PS it looks beautiful!
