Cut knuckles and a half stripped chair....

I strongly suggest some nice leather gloves while stripping furniture of its fabric... ripped my knuckle over a staple... but oh no, once wasn't enough... shortly after I smashed said knuckle into the wooden frame of the chair... another note... if the chair is musty and old and stinky either wear a respirator or tear it down outside... I'm pretty sure my last job wrecked my lungs... the dust from inside of this chair has me wheezing like an 80 year old who's smoked for the past 70 years...

Here is the chair as it is right now... really there are just not enough hours in the day... and even my four day weekend wasn't enough time to work on everything that I wanted to work on!  You can't really see all the work done on the chair because I have all the fabric and foam that I removed piled up there on the seat... There is going to be a bit of tricky sewing on just a couple spots for the chair... everything else is stapled or uses this long staple strips...  I'm so stoked to get it done... I'm going to try to remove the rest of the fabric tonight... and possibly replace the foam... then tomorrow start cutting the fabric and work on some of the sewing... I have to make a pile of piping too... I'ma go google making piping now...
