Forget water-boarding, starvation, sleep deprivation. I propose a new punishment for any enemies of our country: Stripping down upholstered furniture! More specifically, pulling staple, after staple, after staple, after staple....
Ugh! Is this not the worst job ever??? (Stripping wallpaper comes in at a close 2nd place!)
Happily, I discovered that the seats from these chairs can be removed. That will make them much easier to work with. Just the seat took over 2 hours to clean off. Check out the front section... 3 LAYERS of staples!...on top of the cardboard strip, under the strip, and under the cording. Lovely.
About 1/2 way through I went and got this little jewel-
It helped tremendously. Still hard work, but this was much better than the flat head screwdriver and needle nose pliers I had been using.
WELL over 3 hours later-
I think I'm developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
One to go.
Surely the re-upholstery will be a snap after this. Famous last words.
Thanks for letting me whine today. :)
