Ok I may be a red neck after all.

I have purchased a gun online!

Shocked? Horrified?

It is ok, I haven't totally lost my mind. Here is my gun:

Inspired by my extremely clever crafting friend Kylie from All Things Lovely I have decided to try and recover a chair. I have wanted to do it for years and until I saw her tutorial I thought it was way beyond me. It probably is way beyond me but I'd like to give it a try anyway. My gun is on the way and I have to decide on some fabric. I'll post pics to keep you all laughing.

Next thing on the list is wadding and then spray glue and I think I might need new foam. We will see.

So, what is stranger- me buying a gun or a attempting to do my own upholstery?


  1. What a fantastic idea - I have faith that you can do it!

  2. I have wanted to reupholster a chair for ages. I saw my dream chair on the curbside collection but couldn't fit it in the boot with the pram, it had a gorgeous 60's scandinavian feel about it, but the fabric was pretty tatty. But of course I had to abandon it and when I made it back with out a boot full of prams it was gone. I still hold out hope that I wil find another and will definitely be trying to recover it myself. Good luck! Where do I find All Things Lovely- would like to check out how she has done it.
