d*s reader natalie hansen is one talented lady. she loved this ava green fabric from repro depot so much that she bought five yards of it and reupholstered her living room chair in- by herself! i'm not much of a seamstress (not one at all really) so i'm always in awe of anyone who can reupholster on their own- with such great results. i love seeing the diy talent out there- if you've done anything similar feel free to send it along! great work natalie!

wow, that's amazing! i've been wanting to do something similar for awhile, but i always forget about it!

you know, it would be a lot of fun to go out and find old chairs that need reupholstering and bring them home to make them look great. then you could turn around and sell them :) i mean, for a person who has the time and resources.

i think the white would be awesome- it would be super graphic and punchy. but you could always do dream or even a soft pastel for something less "pow!" and graphic :)

also, i may be crazy but i think coral would look rad, too.

I love the chair and fair play Natalie for the work you have done, a friend of mine has just finished to reupholster 6 dining chairs and from the little i saw, it ain't an easy job at all !
I love the patterns and the color is fantastic !

I did a couple myself, but nowhere near as classy :)

Here's the process and one of my chairs.

I am going to start my first upholstery project in the next month - any recommendations on what kind of staple gun I should look for? I am on a budget, so the cheaper, the better!

Thanks for all of the awesome feedback! I updated my blog to let other DIYrs know just how easy this was (but then again, I'm an artist and know how to stretch canvas). :) Please feel free to email me if you have any additional questions ! I'd love to help you out! natalie@nataliehansen.com.
