I have never done any thing like this before so I went to You Tube for help :) I watched a ton of videos on reupholstering many different styles of chairs and then talked a little with the ladies at Hobby Lobby and Jo-Ann's to make sure I had all the appropriate materials. Then picked my fabric and finally got to work.

I have been so inspired lately by many different decorating blogs that I follow; this prompted me to search through my house for something to makeover. This was my Great Granny's chair. On a visit out to my Granddaddy's house about 6 years ago he gave it to me and since then it's been sitting quietly in a back room of my house just collecting dust. Looking back I'm thinking why didn't I think of this sooner! What a great chair that just needed a refreshing look.
I didn't know my Great Granny very well she passed when I was young but I remember visiting her a few times and I remember thinking at one visit that I hoped my hair could be as white as her's was when I get older :) Thanks for holding on to this chair Granny and thanks to my Granddaddy for passing it on to me. I love it!
