Upholstery can be one of the most dramatic ways to change a room. It's an especially amazing tool for pieces you find on Craigslist, the curb, or in a thrift store. Being able to add or change fabric on a piece opens up a million more options for a makeover. Casa Sugar featured this video last week about the gals at Spruce. It shows them going through the complicated process of taking a chair down to it's frame and rebuilding it. They also talk a lot about the dying art of upholstery.

Not all upholstery jobs have to be complicated, by the way - many are simple recoverings (like basic cushioned dining chairs). So don't be intimidated by the fact that they are putting in new springs and all that! But it is a beautiful transformation that I think you all will really enjoy!

I'm totally wanting to tackle my own upholstery job now! So inspiring!
