I’m ok with a staple gun. They’re fun, they make a good loud noise, and you can do cool things with them. What scared me was corners. I googled my way through a bunch of sites to try to get some idea of the best way to upholster corners. Pretty much everything I found said something along the lines of, ‘start in the middle, work your way to the corners, then do the corners.’ Um, ya. Very helpful.
With Dagny’s assistance I finally did it. If you ever need someone to encourage you that you can do something, Dagny’s the one. She’s very convincing :o). One cushion down, one to go.
Hey, wait – there’s a table in our dining room! But, no, not a dining room table. I went to an antique store last weekend in hopes of finding one, and instead came home with this 8 foot table, which we think will work great in our craft/sewing/doing fun stuff room.
It needs a little TLC, but so far we’ve eaten on it, crafted on it, and sat on it, and it seems to belong here. Dagny’s very happy to have somewhere to put her sewing machine.
Some neat stuff to look at:
