Should I DIY?

I've never been much of a DIYer but that's all about to change...


I'm taking a upholstery class!! I have decided that I'm not going to waste money on something I'm certain I can do myself. The class is only $100.00 and I can bring a piece of furniture that I have, for my project.

That really sold me on the class because if I can take my settee or one of my  regency chairs and make it all pretty, I will attack all of my looming and future projects with a vigor.

Class starts in February and I can't wait!!

That sounds like fun. I love picking up new hobbies.

P.S. I love this... said...

Hey Ladies,

Thanks for stopping by!

@ChinkyGirlMel - I plan to document the class project as well as my (hopefully stellar) attempts. Should be interesting.

@ K.Rock - I'm a lifelong student..anything I find interest in I have to take a class. And I wanted to learn more intricate reupholstery..not just recovering dining chair seats.

I always wanted to take an upholstery class. They offered one in Houston when I lived there and I didn't do it. I kick myself all the time for that! Good luck with your class!

This is a class I would love to take. I have four chairs that I've begun about three months ago and I haven't completed them yet. A class like this would give me the kick I need!
