Congratulations, Sarah! You are the winner of a brand-spankin’ new Spruce book!! I’ll be emailing you shortly.
And for all of you lovely people that left a comment, but didn’t win, perhaps this book can go on your Christmas list. After all, it’s just around the corner!
Now, a couple notes about the chair I chose to reupholster. It’s one of those pieces that’s been with me for what feels like forever. We had it in our home growing up and then later it traveled with me to college and finally Texas. Despite it’s tattered trim and outdated fabric (see a before image HERE), I actually never thought to recover it. At least not until Spruce came along and gave me a super handy guide to work by.
Now, I’m not going to lie. This was the first time I attempted a DIY upholstery project and it was a challenge. Hence, the delayed post. So, I’ll share a few words of wisdom for those considering an upholstery project. Give yourself PLENTY of time. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect. (Mine certainly isn’t, and it turned out alright.) And persevere. With enough gumption and elbow grease, you can get through a lot! I also highly recommend snagging Amanda’s new book. You’re welcome to email me with questions that come up and the Spruce team has offered the same.
Best of luck, everyone!
P.S. The fabric I chose is Fuzz in Black by Bonnee Sharp of Studio Bon Textiles. Bonnee was the first designer I worked with when David and I first moved to Texas. As you can see, her designs are lovely! And, of course, Bonnee is just as wonderful herself.
