On to the upholstering! First, I've got to say I absolutely love the pneumatic stapler I got for Christmas. It is amazing how much easier upholstering was this time around. Anyways, as with any upholster project I've done so far I always think it won't be so bad. It is really only three pieces of fabric, right?! Well, this project had its hiccups too.
As with an piece, you usually start by removing the back of the piece. I had to be careful to save the fabric to use as a template later.
Did I mention that it isn't always a good idea to be lazy? Needless to say, my hand sewing skills are not the best. But using the existing fabric as a template, I sewed on my first piece of brown velvet fabric. It wasn't great but it will do.
As you can see from the picture, I then stripped off the last piece of fabric. You would think I would just need to attach two large pieces of fabric on the front and back and be done but it just isn't that easy. Stay tuned while I take you on my bumpy but rewarding upholstering journey.
