Antique Side ChairI recently posted a new video to our upholstery classes website and it got me thinking about how much I enjoy my job. 

Not only do I get to play with fabrics every day, but I get to see and refurbish some wonderful pieces of furniture.  Being born to a family of creatives has been the best thing for me.  I am always examining things and coming up with ways to make them beautiful again.

The recent project I did for a long time client was to reupholster a pair of Antique Side Chairs, also known as Cock Fighting Chairs or Reading Chairs. These have been in her family for many years and she wanted to give them each their own personal style.

The green chair with decorative tacks will sit in the library room in front of a wall of books. How fitting for such a chair!

The second chair will go in her daughter’s room and was done in this pleasing peach fabric. The chair will look wonderful in that room.

If you would like to learn how to reupholster this kind of chair you are in luck.  We have made a full video tutorial that is available on our membership site.  With this video you can learn to upholster this and many other pieces in the convenience of your own home.

As always, I love to see what you create so please share your projects with me on our private members only community.

See you on the inside,
