2 Working Our Way Towards Recovery

>> Thursday, April 14, 2011

Oh, friends. This arm chair rehab has been a bit of a struggle. The demo & prep work were a breeze, but finding the right fabric has nearly driven me insane for several reasons. First and foremost, I’m super cheap and refuse to shell out the big ones for a few yards of fabric. Secondly, well, I guess there is no secondly. Basically, my extreme frugality got in the way and I hit a major roadblock with choosing upholstery fabric…until now!

After searching this town high and low, this perfectly leafy/floral print captured my penny pinching little heart. For a measly $6.00 a yard, this was serious love.

All I need now are a few free hours and a TV equipped with a Real Housewives of NYC marathon.

I love it! Can't wait to see the chair when you finish it. It will look great.
