Our First Reupholstery Project
My daughter and I will be tackling a reupholstery and paint makeover on this vintage chair I found at a thrift shop. We picked out some gray and cream fabric in a woodsy pattern and a crisp black rope braid piping. We'll prime the chair and paint it glossy black, then with the help of the new staple gun I just bought, we'll reupholster it with our fabric and hot glue the piping into place (to hide all our mistakes, hopefully!) We'll post "After" photos as soon as it's done.
