A new project.

15 Sep

Because that’s what I really need, right? It won’t be started anytime soon and it will have a huge learning curve … but it’s there when I’m ready.

I’m going to reupholster a chair.

I’ve dreamed of this moment for the last couple years. I’d always been on the lookout for a chair in need of a makeover … but even if I found one, I never had any way to haul it. Enter a boyfriend with a trailer.

We were in Rochester yesterday with the trailer, Dave needing to pick up a piece of furniture himself. We stopped at the Goodwill just in case there might be a chair for me … and by golly gee, the chair was there. Calling to me. It said, “Pay $30 for me. Now is your chance. Make me pretty.”

I hope I won’t let you down, chair. Like I mentioned, it’s going to be challenging. New skills, new tools, NEW POLKA DOT FABRIC. At least that’s what I’m thinking right now. Polka dots.

Polka dots are always the answer.

      I’m going to rely lots on online tutorials when the time comes to deconstruct and reconstruct the chair! You’ll get to meet Dave next weekend – he’s coming home with me for the benefit! (That way he can drive home late Saturday night while I sleep in the car to be ready for Sunday morning!)
