I finished taking apart my $12 wing back chair, and here is where I was at.
The reason it took me so long to get going on this chair was because I could not find the right fabric. I knew I wanted a pattern, but not something too feminine, and nothing was just the right fit. Then, I was at good ol' Target one night when I found the lattice tablecloth for my office curtains, and I spotted the same print in a green tablecloth, and a blue curtain panel. I actually debated a bit on which color to get, but finally decided on the blue.
And, as luck would have it, I had a buy one get one 50% off coupon for Target Home Curtains! Score!
So, I set out my old chair pieces on top of the curtains and got to cutting. Yes, Bailey and Roxy were there to "help" as always.
If you remember, in part 1 of reupholstering this chair, I wrote down the order of how I took each piece off the chair. When I started to work on putting this back together, I worked backwards on my list. Here is a look of the chair going back together using my trusty staple gun.
After all was said and done, it took me about 6 hours to reassemble. I was somewhat apprehensive about starting this project, but overall, it was pretty simple. As long as you take it one piece at a time and have patience, you can get through it and save hundreds of dollars on a beautiful chair.
I bet you're probably wondering how much this chair cost when we were finished, huh? $12 for the chair, $30 for two curtain panels (we got $10 off with our coupon), and $3 for staples.
I could not have purchased a chair like this for anywhere near this price, and learning to reupholster will open so many DIY, money-saving doors!
