Reupholstery Project Part II- Progress

You remember I started this project this week. So far this has been a fun, easy project. When I say easy I do not mean quick and thoughtless. It is taking much, much longer than I anticipated (don't they always?) and there is a lot of thinking that goes into it. Each part is a process but it really is just like wrapping a present.
My workspace currently. I woke this morning at 5AM to try to get some quiet work in before the rugrats woke up. You see, they are off of school right now and either they are "helping" or near me screaming, singing, arguing, etc. Ahhhh, the peace and quiet!
Two wings and the back pad done. Did you know staple guns give you blisters?

The welting has begun. I love the details that make it look professional.

Did you know that most of it is pulling fabric through openings in the frame?I decided to NOT do both chairs simultaneously so that I can look at the purple one as a guide. I am not sure that was the right decision or not. The thought is always looming in the back of my mind. "I am going to have to do this all over again!"

Today I am working on the box chair pad. More sewing machine today than staple gun.

Hubby is on his way home from Europe right now, YAY! And my niece is in labor! Today is a GOOD day!
