The Best Little Chairhouse in Texas, and by Texas I mean Ohio
I needed another project like I needed a hole in my head. But it is time to tackle the tettering tower of wayward and derelict chairs in the garage. mr. V has threatened. And that is never pretty. It is true. I have a thing for chairs. Ever the chair chatelaine, I cannot stop dragging them home. Or accepting cast offs. No matter the condition. I have no less than 11 chairs in varied states of undress and in desperate need of a proper upholstery job.
Enter Fanny. Girl’s been ridden hard and put up wet; her dress is soiled and in tatters and her skin needs buffed, scrubbed, and lady-fied. But girl’s got some simple sessy curves and gams going for her, so this gal is first up for a makeover.
Fanny will be receiving a paint job, seat plumping, and some bright fabric. This is my first attempt at upholstery. With mr. V’s tutelage, he does car upholstery, I am hoping to only smash my thumb a few times. This is my inspiration:

She does upholstery like nobody's business. via
I will keep you abreast of my progress. I can promise you it will be slow, like all other projects around these parts.
