So, Melissa challenged the blogosphere to a Procrastinator's Party and gave us two weeks to get a project done that was in need of attention. As you may recall, I had a chair to makeover...ONE CHAIR.
Some bloggers chose to do an entire room (cough*Lindsayyouoverachievingjerk*cough) and finished them beautifully. Me, I only had the one flippin chair and well, I'm only halfway there.
IN MY DEFENSE, I've had a busy couple of weeks at work, am planning a golf tournament, have had several shoots, and am working on launching my real life photoblog, so it's not like I didn't have much to do...and there's been a ton of soap opera and bon bon eating that's required my attention, too.
ANYWHOOOO, the chair had about four or five layers of nasty fabric on the seat cushion. The top was plastic and ya know what was under said plastic? WALLPAPER...I kid you not! Lots of staple removing was required, then fixing the padding/batting, then arranging the new fabric just so. Then there was the SEVENTY TWO layers of horrific paint...the sander wouldn't do it, so I had to get the stripper involved...no not that kind of stripper!
It's taken me longer than I would have liked to get the chair back to basics...hopefully tomorrow I can get it cleaned up and sanded down and then by Saturday, I'll be able to finish it off. Until then, how bout a sneak preview???
