Having Jesse home tends to make me more accountable. I can't lay around and eat bonbons all day with her watching. So I've been working on a project. When I took the upholstery class this spring, my plan was to re-cover three chairs that I have had for years. These three chairs came from the old Young's Ranch in Red River. They are funky. Who know how many times they have been covered and re-covered. When I got them from Young's, they were a coral Naugahyde - from the Naugabeast. I had them covered in Southwestern style fabric - they were chic! That has been close to 20 years ago, but they are still classy chairs. As simple as they are, surely they would not be hard to cover. After my very informative upholstery class, I have now started covering the chairs. Today I finished the first chair. You can see in the photo that one chair has arms and one does not. The third chair does not have arms - two with and one without. Funky! I will do the armed chair in a different material. I'm pretty happy with the way the chair turned out. Although, I don't think this upholstery thang is for me, but I will finish this project. Toby asked me why I chose to put the stripes going sideways. Really? Did he think they should go the longways? When my eyebrow went up questioning his style, he didn't say much. Then he reminded me of the M*A*S*H episode where Trapper had a special pinstriped suit made, but the pinstripes went the wrong way - pretty funny.
I just want to say that I hate the new blogger. Putting photos where I want them on the blog is beyond me.
