Reupholstering?

I am contemplating taking on the challenge of reupholstering a wingback chair I have.  I know - SCARY!  This chair was given to us for free and has just been sitting in a corner out of the way since it is a nasty pink color - a mix between rose and bubble gum pink - and doesn't match anything we have.

I've found quite a few tutorials on how to go about reupholstering, but wanted to know if there were any tricks or tips any of y'all have?  Maybe you've found a blog that has great instructions?  Any help would be greaty appreciated!

I've also found a few fabric websites, too - do y'all have any favorites?  I don't want to spend a ton on fabric so I need something reasonably priced since it will take about 7 yards to reupholster the chair.  Hmmm...Should I go bold a do a print?  Or keep it simple and do a solid color?  Decisions, decisions...

P.S. - Did you notice that cute little new badge on my sidebar?  That's right.  I'm a Stella & Dot Stylist :)

Stella & Dot Stylist

For the past two years I have toyed with the idea of becoming a Stella & Dot stylist.  When I was living in Huntsville it just never seemed to work out - I worked odd and long hours and was always gone on the weekends, which didn't leave me much time to devote to being a stylist.

Well, ladies and gentlemen.  I took the plunge and I am so excited to say that I am now a Stella & Dot stylist!  This is a company that I back completely - they are ethical, supportive and their product is FABULOUS.  It seems that I came in at a perfect time, too!  Their Spring 2012 line just came out and OH MY GOODNESS (enter valley girl voice here) it is absolutely stunning.

Just to give you an idea, here are a few of my favorite pieces...








Gorgeous, right?  And there are probably 100+ more pieces I could have put on here!  I can't wait to get my samples so I can show them off!  It feels great to work for a company that I can truly say has beautiful, quality products.  Feel free to browse and shop my online store!

Interested in becoming a Stylist?  I'd love to have you on my team!  Or live in the Montgomery area?  Host a trunk show and get FREE jewelry!  Just e-mail me at kelleyblakelee@gmail.

Here's to a happy January (and a happy 2012)! :)
