Double Take: Before & After Armchair

Let me first start off by saying Kah is forcing me kindly asked me to write this post for one of our beautiful furniture re-dos. It was our first time trotting into the territory of furniture upholstering. However, I am ashamed to admit that I didn’t offer my dear sister much help with this project. We (Breeze and I) assisted her with the removal of the old mud-stained  fabric (Kah and a cousin of ours dropped the chair in the mud, while trying to get it in the car). We spent countless days removing staples from the frame. I’m even a little sad to say that we invited my mother and aunt over under false pretenses to help with the staple removal process. I know!

You guessed it, inspect it again. Yet, we prefer to let an inspector, not of the human variety, do all the gritty work. Here we introduce Breeze…The Furniture Inspector. Read more
