As usual, I have bitten off more than I can chew with my latest crafting adventure.
Again I think it boils down to my penchant for idealism, I had this idea that being the clever housewife that I am, I could reupholster a chair. Umm yeah right.
Why someone with absolutely no experience with anything remotely crafty could do such a thing I do not know. Anyway Last night at about10pm I decided it was the ideal time to get going on the chair project.
So this is the chair before:
And after I had finished ripping it all off and removing the leg that I can't reconnect...
So now I'm totally regretting it and I wish I'd just put the new fabric on over the original mustard velour. I have no idea how to make it all smooth again, I guess I'm going to have to find some sort of filling and interfacing?
I have no idea whether I should get rid of this gross stinky brown stuff? I don't really even know what it does, it seems to be the cover for the springs... Anyone know anything about chairs?
What a dill I always do this. Now I suppose this poor old chair will have one of three futures:
1.)Death by way of council pick-up
2.)Life imprisonment by way of being banished to the cellar room where all my unfinished projects go
3.)Resurrection and new life by way of me taking the bloody thing to an overpriced upholstery store
Hmmm do we choose life or death?
