One of the first things I did yesterday morning after being cooped up all day on Friday was to buy three bunches of yellow tulips. I wanted to brighten the living room with spring color.
The small chair in the background was recently reupholstered in taupe mohair and I think it turned out quite nicely. The chair had been my grandmother's, was originally covered in a nubby rose fabric, and later, a red ticking stripe fabric (which never really suited the chair). I'd reupholstered it myself in the ticking stripe more than 12 years ago, when I took an upholstery class. I'd had visions of turning all sorts of furniture in new pieces by upholstering them myself. Although the class was a good experience, I never ended up reupholstering anything myself after this chair and another wingback that's in storage. It was a long class that went on for weeks and it seemed as though it would take less time to prepare oneself for childbirth than it would to recover a chair. Needless to say, I took the chair to a professional for its mohair cover.
Thank you for your kind comments on my last post. I hope you have a good week ahead. I've been working on a project that doesn't involve furniture or fabric, but has taken a lot of time and experimentation. Hopefully, if all goes well, I'll be able to share it soon.
