make me pretty – the chair that made me buy a serious stapler

August 10, 2011

When I found this chair marked down to $6 I new it had potential. I’m a sucker for a chair with a fabric panel on the back! In the picture below, I had already taken off the front fabric and foam. I found that the fabric had been stapled into this tiny indentation – there was no way my regular electric stapler could handle this.

So I found an upholstery staple gun on amazon that was actually pretty affordable, of course the air compressor you need to go with it is another story. So since I had borrowed my neighbors air compressor to finish this chair, I decided to go ahead and try to knock this one out too.

Her she is, reupholstered in pretty Amy Butler fabric!
