  2. Amazing job! The button tufting is so beautiful. I think the brass feet would look really cool but it is also great just the way it is.

  3. Looks beautiful! Thanks for all the information! I did some chairs for my entryway about a year ago and I thought it was super hard. Now, after reading through this…it’s bringing it all back. I got a new/old mid-century chair that I was debating on whether to do it myself or hire it out…HIRE it out has now won. It looks great Julia!

  4. You are completely amazing. I wouldn’t even know where to begin. And I totally agree that wheels would be perfect. And your poor kitty!!! That picture is priceless!

  11. BEAUTIFUL!!! Great job Julia! It was definitely worth all the skinned knuckles and arm re-do! I’m wayyy to chicken to try a sofa, let alone a Chesterfield.

  12. How amazing! And I know I saw some castors at ACE hardware. Granted the wheel was black but the metal was gold and I think that’s good enough!

  13. Three cheers for perseverance! You definitely had some obstacles with that one. I crack up every time I see that photo of your cat! Thanks for the mention, I’m glad you found someone to do them!
