A Tom Sawyer Going On

I have had two of these chairs long enough that the fabric on the seat is beginning to fray.  That and I am over the floral brocade look.  At least in my house.  Right now.  So, I got this hair-brained idea that I could reupholster.  I mean, don’t you just wish it were so and it is?

See all those brads!?  Someone had to pull them off one by one…  And I chose that someone, Matthias and me.  It is tedious work.

Alright, it was mostly Matthias

I pulled out about ten of the five hundred brads and decided to go do laundry instead.  When the doorbell rang I heard Matt telling his friends what he was up to.  Gosh, it looked like such fun.

In no time at all those guys had the chair stripped of every brad and were out the door to play.

This is the fabric my interior design consultant (aka Meghan) selected.  I also plan to paint the wood a glossy black.  Now I just have to actually do it.   Do you think the boys would be up for reupholstering?
