I have been dreaming of doing upholstery lately too! I can't wait to see how your new chair looks. I'm sure it will look fantastic. Please post any tips you learn along the way!

Love it! You sound just like me with all the projects you have on the go and trying to find time to complete them ( before getting bored and moving on to a new thing :)

The chair looks great! I've been wanting to tackle an upholstery project myself, but still gathering the courage!


I have a piece in my garage that I have been waiting to upholster. I have no experience and no idea where to start! I just ordered the book you recommended on Fabric.com, but I was wondering about what tools to get. I googled upholstery tools and a million things came up. Will the book help with that or do you have any recommendations?

Sorry it took so long to get back to you but I started with a tack puller (ace hardware) a wooden mallet, a tack hammer, pliers( for staples) and some tacks. I would recommend a staple gun too but the hammer and tacks are esiest for beginners. I bought all the tools, expect the tack puller, on ebay. Good Luck
