Happy Friday Morning!
Here is another project I completed for a friend recently. She bought a beautiful wingback chair at an estate sale and wanted to moderize it. She choose some fabric and I got to work. When trying to determine how long a upholster project is going to take, a big factor is the time it takes to strip the piece down to the wood. It varies from project to project but always budget ALOT more time than you think. I learned that lesson on this chair. I thought, maybe a 2-3 hours to strip it down. It ended up taking almost 7 hours! The previous upholsterer was NOT shy with the staple gun. In some area it seemed like there were 100 staples per sq. in.! OK….maybe I’m exaggerating…..it was time-consuming – but the end product was totally worth it.
Have a great day!
