My Own Bliss & Reupholstery
While I did not attend Blissdom, I had my own weekend of bliss – scrapbooking with friends at a cute Bed & Breakfast style place called Treasured Memories Retreat in Brownsburg, Indiana. Imagine, if you will, breakfast, lunch and dinner prepared for you. Having a nice warm bed to go to at the end of the day because someone turned on the electric blanket. A large scrapbooking room to chat, hang out and let your creativity flow.
With more winter weather on the way, we were all fantasizing aout how cool it would be to be “snowed in” at Treasured Memories…
I’m slapping myself back to reality now, and am investigating references in doing my chair reupholstery. The fabric store gave me a couple of names, and I’m mulling over my alternatives. Do I reupholster the chair altogether or slipcover it? One of the references is an individual, and the other has a store location. The individual is significantly more expensive, but then she sent me some photos of her work…
I’m a big fan of slipcovers, so part of me finds that option very appealing. Just not sure how well this chair will LOOK if it’s slipcovered. More thinking to do on that one, but aren’t those pieces beautiful?
What are your reupholstery experiences? Any tips?
Restful, me-time over. Back to work!
