just like magic.

why oh why can't I be an upholsterer??? it would be magical.
i would take this pair of shiny peach craigslist steals...
 and with 10-15 yards of  fabric (of course fabulously on sale)
that would look something a bit oatmealy like this...
 i would magically transform them into perfect little ladies
that would be ever so happy to live in my living room...

sigh....

I would LOVE to have 2 upholstered chairs in our living room to replace one of the couches. if you ever become a master upholsterer, I can be your first client :)

So, move to Austin and we can take upholstery classes together. Then we can open up a shop and merge our blogs and love our awesome lives. Seriously, one of the things I want to learn in the next 2 years. My grandmother was an awesome upholstress(?) Learning to sew is the first step I hear...

I want to be an upholsterer too, boo-hoo. We have wing chairs in fabric similar to yours and would love to do something different. Trying to work up my nerve to make slip covers.
