1. I have 6 of these chairs.
2. I bought them slightly used from a friend.
3. I thought I would use them to replace some at the shop.
4. This was several months ago. (frowny face)
They are currently scattered throughout the house.
5. Fortunately no one has complained.
I planned a re-upholstery project on a chair to go near my coral and pinky-burgundy quilt I made years ago and had already found the most awesome fabric at Hobby Lobby. So 2 chairs will stay at home. (I'm going to experiment with chalk paint on the other before I recover it.)
Why did I wait so long to start? Who ever knows the answer to such questions?
So Wednesday while the blind man was installing my blinds (ha,ha) I busied myself to stay out of his way.
First plan of action: thinking slip-cover style might work best and easiest. Reverse fabric and pin to fit top curves and down the back.
But I figure what the heck, if I can find the right strange shaped screw driver tip, I'm just going to start unscrewing everything. And it worked! Now my job was tons easier. Let's get that stapler out!
Several hours later, all that remained was to stitch the lower part of the back.
Now I really love tools. Especially my drill.
However, my stapler is another story.
80% of my attempts shot out 2-3 staples.
19% shot 5 staples. Thus the need for the needle nose pliers. 99% of the staples didn't go in all the way, thus the hammer. Perhaps I'll look at buying a new one. (Couldn't be the operator, right?)
done before 5.
Now I must say I was more thrilled with my chair being finished than my new expensive blinds.
