Do you have a "before" upholstery project that is calling for an "after" but you haven't found the inspiration to take on the task? I've been staring at a pair of vintage wingback chairs that are in dire need of a textile transformation for months. Well, after watching Spruce Home's Upholstery Process Video on Etsy, I can attest that the motivation for your happily ever after upholstery project may be in the immediate future.
If you haven't heard of Spruce Home, here is a brief introduction: Spruce Home was founded in 2006 by Amanda Brown and Lizzie Joyce and has grown from Spruce Home Etsy shop to Spruce upholstery shop in Austin, Texas. Not only do they reupholster furniture with style and grace, but they have expanded to include fun home accessories and now offer upholstery classes and instructional videos.
The Etsy Process: Upholstery With Spruce Home video is a true an inspiration to upholstery novices everywhere. It's charming to hear how the two artists describe their craft and how they refer to themselves as "upholstery matchmakers," uniting the perfect piece of furniture with its fabric soulmate.
Sigh...if only they could play cupid with my chairs for one day!
