EM:Chair Edition - Episode two

Well! I pulled staples out of that chair all. day. long. Apparently when you recover a chair, it's good to get one that is NOT well made. The well made ones just make it really difficult.
ONE pile of staples...

As you might know from Extreme Makeover: Home edition, things rarely go as planned. For my day's labor, the bottom, back, and part of one side are stripped. That is with my husband putting in a few hours after work!

I can, however, recommend tools from my experience. You will need a small screwdriver, a large screwdriver, and a sturdy pair of needle nose pliers.
Grace came over to check on my work. She doesn't approve of improvements that means she won't be able to sit on the furniture, so she's getting one last sit in here. My parents had her shaved for the summer. Sob! She doesn't look too bad in this picture, but she actually looks pretty hideous and not at all like herself. Poor baby!

End of day one (out of what seems like might be hundreds!)
Stay tuned tomorrow!

  1. I suspect that putting it back together is going to be much more fun than taking it apart.

  2. Can't wait to see how this turns out, cause I have a chair I need to do too and it looks really similar in style to yours!

  3. I can't wait to see either! Good Luck! What kind of dog is Grace?

  4. Tonya, Grace USED to be a Golden Retriever!
