Instead, I bring you my finger. Before, and then after, covering said chair. This is to prepare you to appreciate the chair's new look at an even higher level, since you will know what I sacrificed.
I have soft lady hands not used to doing hard work like using industrial staples to recover chairs. I waited a few days to take a shot of this blister, but it was UGLY before.
Yes, I sacrificed some skin in the re-making of my chair.
Ok, ok, fine, I didn't actually take a "before" photo of my finger. If I were smart enough to know that I was going to be tearing the skin off my fingers, I would have put some protection in place beforehand. Instead what you're looking at in the before photo is what I affectionately call "lefty middle fingery."
You get the idea.
Stay tuned for the fruits of my labor.
