Winter projects

so i've decide to reupholster my wing-back chair. the response i've often been getting when explaining this to people i know is a hesitant '' with an odd look as if to say, 'weirdo alert'...but whatever. it's a much needed task because the fabric that's currently on the chair, though livable, does not suit either the apartment or me, and after many years, it's dirty, faded and worn out. I've had it for 6 years, my sister had it before me in college, and it was purchased from a thrift store (and quickly thereafter steam cleaned), so who knows the life it's lived before us! i understand i could throw it out and purchase a new one, but what fun would that be??

so far it's been an interesting project, and at times i've worried if i've gotten in over my head, but after some research on line this morning, i feel more equipped and aware of where to go next. and plus, i figure, it's an old ass chair that really could be replaced if i totally botch this why not practice and see what i can do!!

a few pics to show progress...Brayson looks less than impressed, more like giving me a look,, what are you doing? and why are you not playing with me??
i'm planning to do as little to the springs of the chair as possible cause that scares me, but i'll be replacing most of the padding and all of the fabric...:)

here's to figuring it out!
