A New Find

What do you think of my new chair?  I got up at 5:15 to meet my mom at an estate sale, where we didn't find much, but I did come home with this:



I've only done minor upholstery jobs previously and I've never made welting, so I'm excited to learn some new skills with this project.



When we got back in the car to leave, my mom noticed that my blouse was on inside out!  I wish that was a rare occurrence, but it's not.  Zac has been teasing me for years because I get dressed too fast or in the dark and something is on backwards or inside out :/  At least I'm quick, right?

Have a great weekend!  We only have two left before school starts.  Wow, time flies!

  3. great chair! I just picked up a free chair from work...it is very old and needs some love. Its all wood so I'm going to paint it bright yellow and put it in my sewing studio.

  5. Nice! I like the lines of the chair.
    I have a little tutorial for a chair I upholstered where I used welting and double welting too if it's of any help.

  7. Love your new chair! That was a great find. It'll be fun to see your reveal. I'm glad I'm not alone....I went running around town doing errands the other day, got home and realized I'd been wearing my top inside out all day! Hope you're enjoying your weekend.
