I got a set of three chairs from my in-laws, but they were a strange color of green. This is my first attempt at reuphostering anything, so it was a learning experience, to say the least. Not too bad, though. It took me about a month to finish, because I left her sitting in the garage until I finished all the nailhead trim and attached the back. Our dog died in the middle of this project, so I didn't work on it for a while. So, when inspiration struck one day, I started taking this one apart.
6 hours later, my hand was numb and my arm was throbbing, but she had great cushions so I didn't mess with them.
I spray-painted the legs and arms black and she is beautious, if I do say so myself. She could have used a little bit more tightening, but I love her and she is very comfortable to sit in.
The nailhead trim was the hardest part and was hard to keep in a semi-straight line, but I'm glad I stuck it out. I love it. The fabric I got from Hobby Lobby for like $7.99/yd. and the nailhead trim I got from good-old Wal-Mart for about $1.50/package. All in all, she cost me about $25 to do.
Here she is, (not sure why I keep referring to her as HER) next to my two other projects. (More on those later.) When our new house is finally finished, she will go in my front room.
