How to Reupholster a Rocking Ottoman with a Pillowcase

A few month's ago we had the pleasure of helping our friends with their nursery! You might remember, that we installed crown moulding for them. While we were over, I helped reupholster a rocking ottoman with a pillowcase. My friend, Rachel, couldn't find fabric that she liked, so she bought a flat sheet set that also contained pillow cases! While the guys finished up on the crown moulding I taught her how to reupholster using a pneumatic staple gun! At first she was nervous to use it but then … [Read more...]

Recovering the Ikea Tullsta Chair

This project has been a labor of love for sadly over two and a half years now! I finally finished the chair in September before we left for our vacation. I was determined to finish it because frankly I'm tired of hearing Mr. Woodsy complain about it not being done. We bought this chair used from a friend who was moving out of town for a whopping $25! The Tullsta chair retails at ikea for new for $200! I knew how good of deal we got; however, our friend had cats and the chair was a little beat … [Read more...]

{Part 1} Upholstered Tufted Headboard Tutorial

Our master bedroom revamp project all started because I wanted a headboard. A real fancy headboard. I traveled for work quite a bit last spring; hopping from one fancy hotel to another and in the mean time I was becoming envious of the chic rooms I was staying in. So, when Mr. Woodsy asked me last April what I wanted for my birthday I said I wanted him to make me a headboard. I also wanted to get a new comforter and doing a mini master bedroom revamp. That's how this year-long project … [Read more...]

(Part 2) How To Upholster a Bench Cushion + Tufting

Last week I shared the first of the two part series on How To Upholster a Bench Cushion + Tufting the first of many post to come on our Master Bedroom Revamp Project. Today, I'm going to share how we got to the finished product. At the end of last week's post I mentioned that we decided to tuft the bench. That meant a trip to the store to purchase 7/8 inch 2 Half Ball Cover Buttons. These are metal buttons that you can cover. We took a small strip of our fabric for the bench and began tracing … [Read more...]

(Part 1) How To Upholster a Bench Cushion + Tufting

Mr. Woodsy & I inherited this bench a year and half ago when we helped my great Aunt Millie move from her home into a retirement community. She wasn't taking much with her and insisted we take anything we wanted (within reason--like we were not permitted to take her beloved grandfather clock). The first thing that came to mind was the bench that sat at her bay window in her living room. I had wanted a bench for the foot of our bed since I can remember. Although the fabric choice was clearly … [Read more...]

To Tuft or Not To Tuft… that is the question!

Mr. Woodsy and I started our first project for our Master Bedroom Revamp Project yesterday. My Great Aunt Millie (who is 89 years young) gave us a beautiful bench before moving into an assisted living home. We had been looking for a bench for the foot of our bed for a while and had loved the shape of the bench and the character of the legs, but what we did not love was the choice of fabric. We new the fabric could be changed. Fast forward one year later and we are just now working on recovering … [Read more...]
