Friday's For The Love Of Chairs #5

Since I started this series, I've featured a few chairs each week.  Today I'm featuring just one.  Yeah because it's just that good!  Ready?!

Booyah!

Oh my gosh it's shut-yo'-mouth good is it not?!  You have to see the before to really and truly appreciate this beauty. 


Can you even believe the transformation?!?!  I mean even with my deep love of chairs I would have run away from this girl screaming.  Not JC from My Rustic Cottage Life though; nope she said, "Bring it on!"  This was her first full scale upholstery job!  I know - once again- shut-yo'-mouth! 

Look how great she did! 



I'm so inspired.  I mean really, truly, inspired!  I can, I will learn to reupholster.  Hey JC - wanna teach me?  :)  She gives a nice little step by step, and I love her honesty as to how much time it took to complete.  It was so worth the effort!  I really love that she left the wood legs; it gives it a nice rustic look - perfect! 


Ok, one last look and one last bit of information, then you must head over to My Rustic Cottage Life  to give JC a big high five!



So, are you wondering about this beautiful fabric?  Ummmm.....it's from Walmart!  It's called "Ansley Park" and it was.......wait for it.......$13.75......FOR 3 YARDS!!!!!!  Yeah, I just love ending a post with another BOOYAH!  :)

Go say hi to JC , clearly she's got skillz!

If you have a chair makeover or just a great new chair purchase you want to show off, send me an e-mail at Carmelraye@yahoo.com.  I'd love to feature your chair - clearly I'm obsessed!  I mean who on Earth says booyah when referring to a chair makeover?!  Crazy, obsessed chair lovin' people that's who!  :)

Have a great weekend!  You all make me smile, and I hope I make you smile too!  I know I've been quite the slacker with the projects lately (being a taxi-driving nurse will do that to you), but I hope to be back next week with some good ones for you!  The key word there is HOPE!  :)  I may even have a chair makeover of my own to show off, and it may or may not be gold.  HA- I'm such a tease!

  3. It's hard to believe that is her first attempt. Right now one of our sofas and a loveseat are at the upholsterer, and it will cost us over $1000. Wow! She is doing her wallet a big favor to learn this skill.

  14. Nice upholstery job by JC! I too want to learn how to upholster. It's on my tentative to-do list for the coming year. I can do the whole take-a-seat-off-and-staple-fabric-to-it thing. But not the remove real upholstery and use piping and all that.
