Uncovering Recovery

Raise your hand if you've looked at all the re-upholstery tutorials on the net and thought "I could totally do that!"

Yeah? Okay, now raise your hand if you tried to do that and ended up with a lumpy mass of padding and fabric punctuated by a few injured (read: stapled) fingers. No? I'm the only one. Fine.

But if you have entertained the idea of doing your own furniture recovery you are going to love the lady I'm Tooling Around with today at Scoutie Girl.

Shelly Leer, proprietress of Mod Home Ec, is so cool! She is super enthusiastic about her tools and passionate about her work.

Shelly teaches classes in upholstery for every skill level.

So, if you are far more savvy with power tools than I, check out what Shelly had to say about three of her favorites here. Then, check out the amazing tutorials on her blog.

A little something Shelly whipped up in a weekend.
On the other hand, if you are exactly like me and can only use tools under adult supervision and you happen to live near Indianapolis, Indiana you should definitely sign up for one of her classes.
