I had a busy weekend. Went up north to visit my sister. We did a bit of shopping and I have to say I am pumped for Christmas! A lot of stores had all their decorations up. Do you think it is too early?
Loving splashes of pink here with the zebra chairs!
Happy Friday – little slice of chandlier heaven to start your weekend off right!
So last time I posted on my upholstery project I had just finished the coils. You can see it here. Here is the progress I made on Sunday.
First I covered the coils with a burlap fabric. After I first stapled down in the center of the wood I then folded the excess fabric back so it wasn’t flapping over the edge.
Next I stappled 2 inch cotton edging to the sides. Lesson for next time: I bought this at JoAnne Fabrics – they didn’t have proper edging like an upholstering shop would. An upholstery shop would have had a fabric edge hanging off the roll making the stapling easier. You can find some here at DIY Upholserty.com.
Next sizing up the cushion. Lay it down…
Draw a line from underneath to create a line of where to cut the cushion.
Next I used spray glue to glue pieces of burlap to the cushion. It was pretty tricky to get it to glue down. I sprayed A LOT to make sure it had enough to stay. They I placed some books on top to hold it down. The can says it takes about 3 hours to dry….so now we wait…
Stay tuned. PS click here for the detailed instructions I followed as I was working on this, since it was my first biggest project.
Hello black and white – I always seem to come back to this color combo. Saw this first one on pinterest. Loving the animal print with the gallery picture wall.
Found this awesome room on pinterest. Love all the plush animal prints and throws mixed with the lucite end tables. Love how they topped the room off with the cute little pig. So cute!
Recreate the space!
