Hello everyone and what a beautiful day it is in the Philadelphia area! I love September and the cool change in the air!  Below is are some pictures of my very first reupholstering project.  It was not as easy as I had thought it would be (but what ever is?).
 I wasn't a blogger when I started these chairs so I do not have pictures of the before - the following week I became a blogger and here is stage one:
Sorry!  I don't know how to turn this one right side up!  I'm getting there though, I managed to turn the next couple around!!    Anyhow, I did this one with a crop cloth but did not like the overly casual look so I when ahead and did this:

I thought painting it (ASCP Old White) brightened it up a bit and then I really liked the fabric with it.  So I kept that thought
and kept going
to this!  I had to use gimping and welding because my first time attempts needed some band-aids!!  I really like the finished product - I have another one just like in in the original wood tones - Not in too big of a hurry to start that - although now I know what I'm doing, having the right tools is still key - Not ready to make that investment at this time!!!!!!

Well we are off to the Phillies game, it is German heritage night - which just so happens to fit in beautifully cause Lukas is from Germany!  

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and thanks for popping in!

Until next time...........Trisha
