Ever since I came across Spruce Upholstery in Austin, TX after photographing Meredith Carmichael’s Style Story, I’ve been a fan. The part upholstery shop, part furniture showroom, part workshop venue has taken the art and craft of upholstery to a new and exciting level in the 21st century and I’m thrilled to announce that, while you may not live in Austin, you can still join in the fun that is a Spruce project!
Amanda Brown, Spruce’s founder and owner, recently launched a book dedicated to the ins and outs of working through an upholstery project of your own. I’m no DIY expert, but if you’re going to try your hand at upholstery work from home, you need Amanda’s book. It’s thorough, extensive, and not for the weak of heart.
I’ve been pouring through the pages myself in an attempt to work up my own DIY chair makeover. More on that to come later. In the meantime, leave a comment in this post telling me what you would reupholster if you had Amanda’s book and you may be the lucky winner of a new Spruce book! You have until this Sunday, November 17th, to leave your comment. I’ll be announcing the winner along with my chair reveal first thing on Monday morning. Don’t miss it!
