I'm ashamed to admit, it only took two days' worth of Million and Creedence's quiet-time (about 1-1/2 hours) to finish de-upholstering the first chair.
And it sat in that state in our kitchen for nearly two months.
Anyway, it's done now. I may or may not be missing several portions of fingernails.
But I am ready to be done with pink/mauve in our house
Here are the undressed chair photos I promised.
And to prove I'm absolutely crazy....here's the fabric for the first chair. Online it looked more navy blue, and when it came....Hello! It's teal. Ah well. It's for my reading nook in our room anyway. And if I fail, I might as well fail big.
