I know that this is very long overdue, but awhile back Chris and I had our last upholstery class together. We now have found a new date night activity (more on that later), and I am continuing upholstery myself. Anyhow, I finished one of my chairs and have since almost finished the second at home (before and after photos will be posted soon). Chris almost completed his chaise, but I have been working on finishing it at the beginning of this semester.
First I trimmed the extra fabric from the back of the chair with a razor blade.
Then I made some double welting cord to finish off the edges and cover all the staples.
I attached the double welting cord using a glue gun, very carefully!
Finally, I made some buttons with tacks in them and secured the side pleats.
Chris worked on finishing the fabric on the inside of the arms and the back.
After we finished we packed up our pieces, and headed to our favorite restaurant (Il Casale) to have dinner and drinks at the bar.
I live outside of Boston with my husband, two children, and dog. For the past 8 years I have been working with clients to help them make their home dreams a reality. From helping to build homes from the ground up to helping round out already finished spaces, I listen to my clinets and let their vision guide our process. I have always been a creative person planning spaces and working to make them function better. After completing the Residential Interiors program at Boston Architectural College I learned how to combine my love for funcion and flow with my eye for color, scale, and balance. As a graduate of New York University's Stern School of Business, I understand project planning and budget management. My experience working with clients, contractors, and architects helps to coordinate and streamline the home building and renovation process, helping my clients to have the home they dream of with less of the stress that comes with building and decision making.
