I am giving away this must-have upholstery book!
I have been published. Well technically I haven’t been published but two of my projects have been. My postal chairs are featured in a real, hardcover, done-by-a-professional book about upholstery. Months ago I received in email from England. Someone had stumbled unto my postal chairs (remember version one and version two) and asked if I would be willing to send over some extra images and some information and then they might end up in a book.
Of course I happily obliged. And promptly forgot about it.
A few weeks ago there was a package in the mail. It was met by big frowns from Mr. Songbird. Had I been at it again? Had I been ordering ‘stuff’ online again? I pleaded innocence and frantically searched my brain for what it could be.
Further inspection revealed that it was a gift. It was the book that featured my chairs and their history on page 134 to 137 .
I am so proud. And I know that my mom, who loved these chairs would be even prouder. I can just about imagine here dragging this book all over town and showing it to everyone.
I don’t have to carry it with me to show it off, I do that online 😉 .
The book is really good. It is the kind of book I wish I had had before I started on my upholstery project. It would have saved me a lot of headaches and worries. The book really takes you by the hand and shows you the ins and outs of upholstery. It is, as if you have your own teacher by your side.
But besides showing you which tools you need, what you can expect, how you go about your project and how to get a finished little gem, the book is also chock-full of inspiration. You might recognize a few project from fellow bloggers and you might see a lot of new projects too.
The upholstery book is a testament to the fact that with the right kind of upholstery any old chair, couch or bench can look fab and totally contemporary again.
But we bloggers (and blog readers) knew that already, didn’t we?!
Well in honor of the book coming out, and me being in it, I thought it was high time for another little giveaway, from me to you.
