We finished the chair in July 2021 which was about one year from when we brought it home.
I definitely learned a lot about reupholstering doing this project and was reminded that I don't like working with cording/piping. This fabric was fairly thick too so that didn't make it any easier.
I ended up skipping a lot of the piping. Below is a photo of the side that has piping in the original compared to ours that does not have piping on the side panel. I wish I had left it off in some other areas too.
I do love the finished chair though and I use it. It fits my height well. I'm sure a professional could have done a much better job but I love that my husband and I did the work on this.
Here they are side by side.
