I recently walked through a thrift/secondhand store looking for treasures for my daughters big girl room and saw these wing chairs sitting in a corner, obviously in the store for quite some time, since they had been marked down several times. The chairs were in pretty good condition, except for the fabric which has been completely worn through. The chair was hand crafted and made of solid wood. So I picked it up and thought why not I can reupholster this chair and give it a completely custom look.

Now came the job of putting it all back together. I took photos of each step when pulling off the fabric, so I could reassemble in the correct order and saved the dirty fabric for templates.
|I ripped off the back first, so I knew this would be the last piece to assemble|
|I threw away all the old batting and replaced with new. This is a view of the side of the chair.|

Honestly, I would have to say this was not my favorite decor project, super yucky for one and quite time consuming. I will have to say though, it was interesting taking it apart and understanding the process of putting it all back together again. So I hope this inspires you all to reupholster a chair with good bones that just needs a little TLC.
Over the weekend Dad and the girls had a little snow fun! They built a huge fort to protect the girlies from Dads wicked aim with the snow balls and also the biggest snow man ever!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend and thanks for checking out my blog.
