Before & After :: My First Upholstery Attempt

Don’t look too close, but here is my first attempt at upholstering a chair. I was given this chair from my sweet neighbor. It was almost brand new, but the Tommy Bahama fab isn’t our style. I have always loved the Restoration Hardware deconstructed chairs. I thought I would attempt that look. Also, on my last visit to HD Buttercup I loved all of their kantha quilt upholstered chairs. So… with one kantha quilt purchased from Etsy, a lot of burlap, grey canvas fabric, upholstery tape, staple gun and pins I got to work. All in all it came together well. Right now it is just pinned in place, but I think I will go back with a hot glue gun or fabric glue to secure the tape trim better. So here it is….if you attempt this yourself I recommend wine, Pandora and a lot of patience. Oh and don’t strive for perfection…life isn’t perfect 😉

Have a great Fourth of July weekend all!

Xo, Annie
