These days as cash may be tight or the work hours may be few, a great past time is reupholstering. If you have an antique chair which is looking a bit shabby, why not give it a new breath of life! Start simple, practice makes perfect.
There are courses which teach you how to reupholster. However, typing “reupholstering” into Google returns plenty of great sites that go through reupholstering step by step.
Came across this great blog entry from Jenny Komenda Interiors, which goes through the entire process. Just click on the picture below and it will take you straight to the blog.
