This is a great book for anyone interested in upstyling furniture or completely renovating an old piece of furniture.
It has 3 main sections. The first being a comprehensive list of the tools and materials you may need for your project. The second being a guide to working with different fabrics. I found this section really useful as it listed many fabrics I hadn't even heard of and gave great advice as to what they were suited for, their pros & cons, durability, tips for working with, cleaning and care and even pet resistance. A really helpful guide. The rest of the book consists of step by step guides to upholstery techniques from quick makeovers to longer processes. The book also features some amazing contemporary examples of upholstered furniture to inspire you to have a go!
If you would like to win a copy of this book all you have to do is follow my blog and leave a comment saying what your next upholstery project is going to be. I have a guilty confession to make! I once bought an old chair to renovate as an upholstery project but only lasted 3 weeks at the upholstery course I started. I just didn't have the patience to finish it! Such a shame as you can do some amazing things to old bits of furniture with the right skills.
