I keep finding myself with bits of time. I don’t know how or where they have been coming from but I’ve accomplished lots in the last week. I even started a project that I told myself I would have done in 2009. I thought I had blogged about it before and found it here dated March 2009. Two years late. Thinking back, I made that list when George was 2 months old — those were some high expectations. Ha!
So here’s the chair I found at the curb down our street about 3 years ago….
I haven’t done any upholstery in over 2 years and it wasn’t until I got all my tools out I realized how much I missed it. I love taking it apart just as much as I love putting it back together. I love making something old new again. I love wondering what kind of life the furniture had before it came to be in my hands. Maybe it was someones favorite spot to read. Maybe it was grandpa’s favorite chair or did it get jumped on a lot by little kids? When I started taking this chair apart, I kept thinking that lots of kissing went on in this chair – don’t know why. Wouldn’t that be cool of I was some sort of upholsterer/Medium person… I could tell the past life of the furniture while I was taking it apart.. I digress… a lot… sorry! That would be cool though.
Anyways, I haven’t picked out the fabric yet. I think I want something masculine and modern – I think. I really don’t know yet. I’m liking something like these so far….let me know what you think or find something for me……
