…instagram!

Come follow Blue Egg Brown Nest on Instagram! I’ve had a personal page for a few years now, but recently started a Blue Egg Brown Nest page.

Not quite sure what Instagram is? It’s kinda like Facebook but only with images that you can post. People can follow you kinda like Twitter. It’s fast and easy. Basically, I post pictures and you look at them :) You can start your own page and do some cool things with filters like this…

…painting an upholstered chair

I have painted a few upholstered chairs for clients. The best way to do this is to paint BEFORE you have the piece upholstered with the new fabric. You can strip the old fabric or you can leave it on. Either way, be sure to get into all the little crevices so that when it is fitted with the new fabric there will be not raw wood showing.

Cathy is a repeat client that bought some sweet chairs from me for her lake house. I love thinking of them in a relaxing environment!

She recently brought me two upholstered chairs that she was planning on upholstering. My job was to take care of the legs and arms.

Since she was bringing these to her upholsterer AFTER me, I did not have to tape where the wood meets the fabric.

I used ASCP Country Grey.

Ollie just can’t help  himself.

I have a few projects in my garage waiting for upholstery. The wood trim has been painted. I think I am hesitating because I still want to try my hand at upholstering myself. This summer I’m going to try! Don’t worry – I’ll show you the highs & lows of the process. eek!
