Upholstery Class- can’t wait!

There are some marvelous perks to living in such an arts-focused community. On such perk is establishments like The Skillery – a place where you can take classes in any number of areas. For me, it’s Upholstery for Beginners in March! I am SO excited!

I have been restoring furniture for a while now, but I’m always somewhat afraid of projects that will be heavy on the upholstery side. Sure, I can staple fabric to a chair cushion, but show me a beautiful chair that needs a whole new upholstery job, and I will run away!  Hopefully, this class will give me a few tricks to help me face that fear!


I have been wanting either a stool or a bench or a little pouf for in front of my bedroom mirror for quite some time. Then, this week I found this gorgeous short stool at an antique mall for $95, which is a little more than I was hoping to pay for it, BUT I fell in love and love is blind to prices. The needlepoint work is in perfect condition, and the base only had one tiny little chip on one foot. Love.
