funny story

I bought a old chair for 40 bucks off Craigslist a while back that I was going to reupholster.

The reason I thought I could to it is because I've reupholstered before. Well, recovered would be more accurate. I had one of those boring ole' office chairs from Ikea.


Then recovered with some pretty fabric.


A bit of toile underneath.


Of course once I started to rip it apart (read: carefully deconstruct) I realized there was NO way in hell I was going to be able to do it. So I called in a professional and after much frustration got this.

I love it! Its really comfy too.

Soooooooo, when the guy was dropping it off I asked if he would take a look at my table legs to tell me what he would charge me to strip them. So he sees the table and....

offers me 3X what I paid for it. He picked it up last night.
