As I was doing a quick scan of the furniture room at my favorite Goodwill, I spotted this chair, all alone in a corner. It was only $40.00. I wish I had taken a picture, but it is the same style as the popular ones sold at Target for $299.99. My immediate thought was "Oh, I can recover this and stick it on our new bedroom!"
However, since I am "on notice" I didn't buy it. I did think about it the rest of the day and decided I'd go back for it the next day. If she was still there then it was meant to be. I walked in, and my heart was totally pounding hoping that she was still there waiting for me.
And she was!
With a bit of finagling she fit in my car and is now at home, waiting for her make over.
But here's my dilemma...or dilemmas..
#1. Where on earth can I find cute fabric? I'm not talking cutesy stuff from JoAnn's. I mean modern stuff.
#2 My sewing skills are minimal. I have a sewing machine and I've made some bandannas for my dogs but...that's the extent. So..
a. Any advice for recovering a chair?
b. Any good books or tutorials that you know of that can teach me some uber sewing sKillz?
