Barrel Chair Update

This past weekend I did some work on this nifty barrel chair I got a great deal on at Salvation Army (above). She was a beauty in the store and I knew I had to get her.

The above rendering shows what I want the chair to look like eventually. I played in photoshop with patterns and colors and ultimately decided to go with a basic cream/white fabric and darkening the wood of the chair.

This is my first upholstery project, so I was very careful taking the chair apart, knowing I would have to put it back together.

After finding fabric at Joann Fabrics (with a 40% off coupon!) I started sewing the piping this past weekend.

I even put the buttons(?) on myself! I’m quite proud of it, as well as nervous for the next several steps.

I shall update you as I continue my process. But right now it’s looking awesome, especially given I have zero upholstery experience. Although, I am LOVING my staple gun. Such a great stress release.
