The Wingback

I'm back in Houston and unfortunately I didn't finish the chair I bought up in Maine. It's painted a bright grassy green and the seat is upholstered with a great funky fabric, but the seat back still needs to be recovered. Sad, I know. It's blasphemy to leave a lovely chair like that half done! But don't worry, I'll get back to it eventually. I promise!

So what's the next big project you ask? The Wingback. This big purple monster I grabbed off the curb for free.

This is quite the reupholstery project I'm taking on. It requires a lot of tools and techniques that are completely foreign to me. But that's what this whole blog is about! Learning the trade and turning hideous beasts into gorgeous beauts. Or just pretty decent looking dames.

Here I go! Wish me luck!

Love the Beasts,
