Last weekend a very good friend and I started stripping the above winged chair in a bid to save myself $2000 (I have 2 of them and they'd cost about $1000 each to be reupholstered professionally) and learn some new upholstery skills. This is the only photo... I haven't made any progress since this was taken (about 10 days ago), however I'm hoping that with your encouragement (and with the accountability of publishing on the blog!) this will be one of those projects I actually finish! I'm currently reading through a bunch of books and how to's on some great DIY websites.
