after a lovely lunch (at lovely day) with the ladies of hable i purchased a yard of “fig” in chocolate to reupholster (well, staple gun) my rocking chair. thank you to everyone for their two cents on the fabric project. i’m really happy with the results, and i think ac will like it, too.

My neighbors want me to reupholster their kitchen chairs. They’re Italian, and we have fig trees growing in our backyard-this could be the PERFECT fabric!!! Thank you !!!

I have the same chair though not a rocker. Really needs new fabric.
I love this chair! Your choice is inspiring.
Dumb Q: how much fabric did you buy for this?
Where can I sell my chair when ready — any ideas?
thanks!

i bought a yard of fabric from hable construction. i only used about a tenth of it for this but i’m holding on to the rest for side projects.

i’d try ebay or 1st dibs to sell your piece, depending on its current condition and est. worth.

Thanks so much for the reply.
I’ve never heard of 1st dibs.
Will look into it!
Have a wonderful summer.
