upholstery boot camp

Over the weekend I met my faraway bestie and we took a three day upholstery boot camp.
 modhomeec is located in the SoBro section of Indianapolis
 After a brief overview, we got started tearing down our chairs, it was a lot of work.

double welt was needed to trim my chair, it's very easy to make and looks professional

before + after

And here it is now, it's not perfect but I'm very happy with the new look.  If you have any interest in this type of class, I highly recommend modhomeec.  It's a fun, inviting atmosphere and we learned so much in just a few days.  Shelly Leer is a great teacher and students get lots of individual attention, plus her husband bakes a different treat for the boot campers each day :)
  A little about SoBro--what a great area!  Lots of great restaurants, unique shops and the Monon trail is a wonderful place for a walk, run or bike ride.  Indianapolis is a friendly city with so much to do--the choices are endless and affordable.

 Locally Grown Gardens carries an eclectic mix of food and kitchen items.
