Before & After: Upholstery

One of my favorite places to shop for furniture to reupholster is the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. Do you have one of those in your city? It's a real hit or miss, but sometimes you just strike gold. That was my experience when I found this chair. It was so comfortable - just the perfect size for me to curl up in.....and it was only $18. Um, yes please!

This chair was my first unassisted upholstery piece, and probably my favorite piece of furniture that I've ever had. I kept the legs the same, and just cleaned them up a bit. Luckily the foam and cotton were both in good condition so I could reuse them after disinfecting. It's really gratifying to see how it started and what I've been able to take it to. I'm not trying to pat myself on the back or anything, but I'm really proud of it. 
Puppy out-takes. 
Kennedy seems to be pretty fond of it too. I keep telling myself that she is NOT allow up on my new furniture, but darn it if she isn't just the cutest thing. It's her favorite seat in the house, of course. So I moved it over to the window so that she can look outside while she's lounging. I swear she's a cat in spirit, and apparently I'm a sucker. 

I'm already shopping for fabric to re-do an armless chair at the house which will be the first piece that I'll sell aaannndddd I've already picked out fabric to redo a sofa for our living room...I just have to find the sofa. haha!

Fabric from chair can be found here.
