Upholstery: Yes you can!
Hi, my name is Courtney, and I'm here to tell you that YOU CAN do your own upholstery. I gutted and recovered the chair pictured above when I could barely sew a button.
I know that sewing is intimidating. It's hard. It's foreign.
But don't be afraid to take something apart to see how it ticks. I took a perfectly good chair and dissected its cover. Then used the fabric to make a pattern that I sewed myself onto the chair. You just have to take a leap of faith, trust your instincts, be determined to finish....and consult You Tube!!!!
You're going to see in the next few weeks some pretty impressive DIY upholstery jobs. My goal is to inspire you to follow suit.
YOU CAN do it. Because I did.
