There was a couch

August 12, 2011

I had this great idea (typical) that I would get a friend to pay for my second upholstery class and I would re-upholster their couch in the class. Well, it was a huge undertaking, but I think it all worked out for the best. The fabric was green canvas from IKEA that Maury Vaughan machine embroidered with bright blue and bright orange thread.

I re-did these chairs over a year ago for some friends.  They were pretty beat up but I made them just plain pretty, wouldn’t ya say?

The fabric is from IKEA.  I generally hate on that store, but they have a lot of interesting fabric and it’s all pretty inexpensive.



Tiny Mahogany Chairs

I was so pleased to work on these chairs.  There was so much energy that had been put in these chairs when they were originally made and I felt energized by them.  I refinished the wood, gave it a few coats of tung oil and then covered the pads with wool from a re-purposed poncho.

Ok, I did it.
