What are you most proud of? This was my first upholstery project. I think I did a pretty good job (did not want to pay the high cost of the work here in Geneva, Switzerland).

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go slow, and don't be in a hurry (prevents making too many mistakes). If it is your first time doing a type of project, don't be afraid to 'do-over' by ripping out stitches and removing your new paint if needed. Make sure you have the proper tools! While it is NOT economical to get furniture re-upholstered here in Geneva, Switzerland (they wanted five thousand dollars to recover these chairs), if you are anywhere else it is probably worth it to have someone else do it for you!

Awesome! Kudos for courage! You took on an ambitious project and your results are more than inspiring. I am very impressed and wondering now if I could do such a job as this.

wow, love your chair! I am an American in Brittany, FR, and I understand the prices in Europe when you say expensive for someone else to re-upholster for you! Where did you learn the upholstery portion of the chair? I have a love seat with curved wood like this that needs a new look like yours!
