I would love to learn to reupholster! my dream is to op shop a whole lot of similar (but different) dining chairs and stain them the same colour and reupholster in the same fabric so they're a set but not a set.

Where did you do your course??

Your chair is lovely btw! Perfect for reading craft books over summer :)
