Learning to Reupholster

So, two 40 hour classes later, I have finally completed reupholstering this chair!  This includes hand tying the springs and learning to sew at the same time.  I am proud but embarrassed it took so long.
The fabric is a cherry red Richloom outdoor fabric w/a linen-type look.  Hope you like it! I have a twin chair that will get reupholstered next year maybe!  Throw pillows to come.


  1. You are amazing, Leah! Your new chair is gorgeous. I can see that it would take many patient hours to create this useable work of art.

  2. Great job! I am trying to redo some chairs right now too so I am totally getting encouragement from this!

  3. I have been dying to take an upholstering class, its such a great thing to know how to do!

    Your chair looks amazing, love the color!

  4. so cool!!! i want to take one too...but i have yet to find one in my google searches...
    great looking job...
