I started approximately four billion projects this summer and I finished exactly one. This one in fact. Recovering one of the many hand-me-down pieces of furniture we have.
Have I ever complained about our chair situation? Yes, I’m certain I have. You see for some strange reason I am attracted to uncomfortable chairs that have lived a full life and really need to be thrown on a burn pile. I haul home these horrible chairs to live with me in hopes that someday I will do an extreme make-over on them and turn them into a beautiful piece of furniture that costs me mere pennies. But what really happens is I haul home crap and it stays crap.
Until I need to procrastinate from something and then….
I finish one of the crap projects. The sad thing is this little project took me all of an hour or two to complete. I finished this when I was supposed to be finishing the Birthday Saga. It’s pretty amazing what I can get done when I don’t want to finish something else. I would love to give you step by step instructions on how to upholster a chair, but if you’ve read this blog for any amount of time, then you know I suck big time at telling people how to do anything that requires precise instructions.
But here is what I would tell you:
Get a staple gun, pliers, glue gun, scissors and have fun, it’s kind of like wrapping a present.
