So, I got this wild hair to start on an upholstery project (actually two projects, but one must wait for a new supply of staples for my staple gun) I’ve stripped the cover from a chair I found at Goodwill. It was covered with some really ugly plastic green vine fabric. Then I realized that I was out of staples, so I moved onto my footstool. Scott bought this for me at a shop in Kennesaw, and it had a really ratty cover. I had hoped to do some needlepoint like the old cover, but have had no luck in finding a pattern. So Hobby Lobby happened to have some nice fabric that will do well.
I stripped the old fabric off today, and will start the recovering tonight. So here are the before pictures, and the ‘in between the old and new’ pictures.
Phase 1: Remove all upholstery fabric, in this case two layers. These are the In between the old and the new cover.
Phase 2: Disassemble the wood, glue, clamp, and wait. Hopefully the stool will be much sturdier now!
Hopefully, the new and improved stool will be ready in a few days.
I’ll keep you posted.
