Wing Chair - You win!

I give up. I started to upholster the wing chairs (I have two of them) tonight. My Mom gave me the courage finally to start the project. What a HUGE JOB this is. It's too hard for me. The one arm I did is a complete hack job. I'm done. I'm calling around to see if I can get someone to do it for me. I got a some prices on how much it would cost me - at least $400. just for the labor and one guy wanted $500. It's worth every penny, believe me. Mom was holding it down while I stapled - there are staples all over the room...they wouldn't go in the wood for some reason. Then the staples went in half way and I had to hammer them in the rest of the way but one side of the staple would flatten out so it wasn't in good and solid. I snipped one piece of fabric a little short and then I had to pull like crazy so that another part would stretch over it and hide it. My back feels broken. It's way too much for me. I so wanted to do this myself, but I think it's beyond me. Here are some pictures of the torture.


I am the crafter extraordinaire (on this blog anyway.) I live with my husband, my son, David, in a cozy cape cod style house in Connecticut.
