Realizing I've stolen some of my own thunder with its debut in the last post but I wanted to give the spotlight to the chair I picked up from the re-upholster earlier this week. The place I used is totally out of the way and has extremely surly staff so I figured it couldn't be that expensive. It was just a seat, afterall. Wrong! Close to $200 for this. I think my days of taking things to be reupholstered are over.
Anywho, I am quite happy with how it turned out. Sorry, no before photos of the chair but it was my father's - he bought it at a junk shop and it was pretty worn then his dog slept on it for a few years. So you can imagine.
Very happy with the fabric I picked out. I wasn't so sure since I had to pick in a few minutes (they were closing - see surly mention above) from a 1000 catalogs. I found the fabric for a fraction of the cost they charged me online. I may have to buy some of this for other uses.
This chair will probably live in my office when I ever get around to setting it up.
