Hi everyone! How was your weekend? We had a really busy one, so busy I did not even get around to recapping it. I do have a lot of sneak peeks, teasers and things to share with you all. Which I will do later in the week. Today I am sharing a no sew complete chair reupholster at Homedit.
It was a personal goal of mine to do it with no sewing. For a few reasons, one being I cannot sew. That is kind of a deal breaker. The other being. like me many cannot sew. They may see these great chairs, with great bones but not like the fabric. I wanted others to see that the complete no sew can be done. I have done smaller no sew chair redo’s. This was my first huge, full transformation one.
It was a lot of trial and error. More error really. I had to walk away for a few days, avoid it, ignore it, shoot if dirty looks from across the room. I was determined to do it, and did. The hardest part was the curved side, and the fact that I could not find one example of a full no sew reupholster. This was me, alone, just trying things. The worst that could have happened was it did not look good. Well, really the worst that could have happened was I cut the fabric too much, wrong cuts, not enough, or something just as terrifying to where I single handily sabotaged the project and chair. Also having to tell the owner of Homedit that I cannot do this project. I answer to him when it comes to Homedit.
I did it thought, sure there is a few spots that make me cringe. This example is more of proof that it can be done instead of showing my skills. I have no chair reupholster skills, I need a lot more practice. Now, it is out there. When people Google No sew chair reupholster they will find this. Say “eh”, about my chair. But realize it can be done and they will give it a go. Saving and making pretty one more old chair. There is a full, in depth tutorial, lots of steps and pictures at Homedit.
Have you ever done a project, you were wanting to do just to see if you could? Have you done a chair reupholster before? Teach me all you know, any tips, tricks, magical spells to do this?
