Re-covering from the weekend

What did we do this weekend? Well, let's see. We rearranged most of the rooms in our house, AND we reupholstered another chair!

I've liked the IKEA Tullsta chairs for a while, but thought I could find one on craigslist for a steal. After a few months of searching, I finally found one for free! It wasn't in bad shape, but it was dark gray. So it didn't match our other stuff.

No problem, I had some great nubby fabric that I bought a few months ago for such an occasion.

After two nights, several bad finger pokes and even more cursing, we were done!
For two people who have no idea what they are doing, I think we did a pretty good job. This is our second chair to reupholster and we are both happier with this one.
So is Little Elvis!

He also seems to really love our new furniture arrangements. I was anticipating something from him, but he just went with it. He even likes to play in our bedroom now!

Wow, great job on the upholstery! I wouldn't know the first thing about how to do that. Looks like Little Elvis likes the chair, or camera, or both :)

Nice job!

The smile on Elvis's face indicates he's pretty pleased with the whole thing...:-)

Sounds like a very productive weekend! Wish I could say the same for ours. We did nothing....and accomplished nothing except doing nothing which sometimes is an accomplishment.;) Love the chair!
