Wing Chair

This has been a month in the making!!!! When I first started this project I didn't know that I was going to run into problems. Many lessons learned but I'm finally pleased with the results. So true story....took 9 hours to take off all of the original fabric and it took a total of 3 days stretched out in a 3 week period to finish. make sense?
Lesson one learned: listen to other people that have reupholstered! I read a post from All Things Thrifty about leaving the original fabric on the arms of the chair. I however took mine off and had a WONDERFUL time trying to get it back one. again, lesson learned. Next came the cushion seat. I swear that was going to be the death of me. But I finally got it taken care of and I think it looks pretty good. So some wonderful comments would be soooooo appreciated!!! Thank you! now enjoy the fruits of my labor!

    I've been fiddling with 2 chairs I got off craigslist for 9 months and the frustration has caused me to send them to the storage room..
