I am taking an upholstery class…yes I am….
And it is HARD!! Tuesday night was my third class and I was learning how to do double cording…. thought I would lose my ever lovin’ mind! Oh my gosh!! I asked my instructor if anyone had ever failed this class…he said yes…but he did go on to tell me, I was not going to fail it….he is very encouraging…he knew I was fixing to cry…he is a sweetheart…and an AMAZING upholsterer…and he has impeccable taste! You should see his house! FAB-U-LOUS!
I would be humming along VERY slowly stitching down the middle of the two cords and I would hear a thunk, thunk, thunk…meaning… I was sewing OVER the cords….not good….I bet I took it out and started over about 5 times!
But….here is said double cord…..
Here is what I am working on….I should be done with it this Tuesday. I have another chair like this one and I think I am going to cover that one too and I will have a pair of them…there is a chair in Cameron’s room I am also going to reupholster…
That is my girlfriend Sharon in the back…she got me to take this class with her…she took it last year and she is really good at this! Me? Not so much….yet!
I found this fabric at Hobby Lobby and thought it was so cute and would fit in my den. I spray painted the chair black…
I will keep you posted… My seam ripper is my new best friend….just sayin’
