I'm on PG&E house arrest today. Our water heater stopped working, and our "appointment" is from 8am to 8pm. So until they come, I am stuck inside my house.
So far today I...
...did some work (never-ending Dean's Letters).
...fed the kids (over and over).
...washed the dishes.
...didn't shower (even if I wanted to jump in a cold shower, I can't risk not hearing the door when PG&E comes).
...and decided to rip into my chair.
You all remember my 10-year reupholstery project, right?
I love the woodwork on the couch, but the chair looks a little different. It's missing the wood strip that goes along the bottom and up the arms. Months ago I was looking at the chair and realized the person who attempted to reupholster them before I bought them probably just got lazy and covered up the wood. I was sure of it, but told myself I wasn't allowed to rip into the chair until I was actually ready to start the upholstery project.
But this morning my curiosity got the best of me.
With the help of some pliers, I ripped into the bottom of the chair.
And what did I find hiding under the fabric?
That same wood trim:
Okay. It's official. I'm asking for upholstery tools for Christmas.
