I am a published Author of the following books: The Distortion, Alien and the Cheese:Never Mind the Grill; The Monkey Palace. I married my husband 10 years ago and have 3 wonderful sons. I have always enjoyed doing crafts of all types and so now I enjoy learning Victorian crafts, needlework, scrapbooking, doll making and so much more.
A fews years ago, I taught myself how to recover furniture basically out of need. We just did not have the money and so being college students on a budget, this became the norm. This summer I went to a few garage sales. I found this (sorta ugly blue) Queen Anne Chair for $5.00. I decided to take on the task and challenge to recover this chair. I spraypainted the chair, the original wood color was light colored almost a whitish color. Then, I removed the old fabric, sanded parts to make the chair look distressed and recovered it with leather. I used various sorts of brads to give this a finished look.
