Dabbling In Upholstery
I am so excited! I am signed up for an upholstery class next month!
Last fall I bought a Groupon for half off an upholstery class at a local interior design/custom upholstery shop called Something to Talk About Interiors. Score!!
It took me a while to find the chair but as fate would have it, my firm was doing an update on their furniture and I was able to purchase 2 matching side chairs for $25 each. Love it! I did some checking and turns out these are Steelcase chairs, made in Italy. [No, they are not fra-gi-le. Props if you recognize that Christmas Story reference]. I know I got a total deal.
Took even longer to find the perfect fabric. I knew in my head what I wanted but finding it seemed to take forever. I wanted a floral but not anything stuffy. Something a bit bold but not too graphic since the living room is a bit more formal. It needed to have the right colors, which was the hardest part. I finally found the perfect fabric at Joann. Even better, I had a coupon for 50% off.
I will keep you posted on how the class goes. Hopefully I will be able to take some pictures and I won't staple my finger!
