Getting started

I am really excited to finally showcase my first set of chairs. Before the big reveal, here are a view shots of "before" and "during" the transformation:

The naugahyde looks like it is in great shape in this picture, but it was scratched and pocked and had a lot of wear and tear.

After stripping it down to the frame, the chair received new foundation and new foam.

Adding the welting.......

The full transformation pictures will be posted soon. Please check back for updates.


  1. I love make over shows and this is like a furniture version! I love the new color but can't wait to see the finished product. Keep us posted!!

  2. I like the chang mai dragon one. I think the smaller print will show up better on the relatively small surface area of the seat cushion. Happy upholstering cutie...Where did you find these gems anyway?
