So I got up bright and early this morning to finish re-covering some chairs for a client. I had started the project Wednesday afternoon and want to deliver them today (Friday) so I thought I'd get an early start. In my enthusiasm, I started the project before consuming my first cup of coffee...let me walk you through how the first chair transpired:
This is what one of the chairs looked like Wednesday:
We added some batting to increase comfort,
because they were what I would call "diet chairs"
...you wouldn't linger at the dinner table seated on one.
We then gave them a good cleaning and sprucing.
If you've never experience Scott's Liquid Gold, it's fabulous
(and you can get it at the grocery store):
So to get to the point of this post, can you tell which chair I did first?
The one on the left has the pattern going sideways!! Urgh.
Longer story short, I undid the first work of the morning.
I was obviously staple crazed without my first cup of joe:
By then I had finally woken up and mapped out the next cushions.
After re-organizing, I had another cup of coffee. Or two.
And the chairs look GREAT.
