Announcing The Spruce Ugliest Chair Contest!

If you've ever longed to bring new life to a piece of worn-out, well-loved furniture, this post is for you. Maybe you see beyond stained fabric and tired wood to something greater: a burst of color, a refurbished seat, patterns and details that provide color and comfort while pulling together other elements in a room.

With her new book, Spruce: A Step-by-Step Guide to Upholstery and DesignAmanda Brown, owner of Spruce, a custom upholstery shop in Austin, Texas, has created the kind of do-it-yourself guide she longed for when she first set out to learn the art of upholstery. If you haven't seen the trailer for Spruce: A Step-by-Step Guide to Upholstery and Design, watch it here:

In honor of the book and Amanda's upcoming 10-city tour of book signings and classes, we're hosting The Spruce Ugliest Chair Contest on our Facebook timeline! Enter for your chance to win the ultimate DIY upholstery prize: 
  • an upholstery hand tool kit
  • $200 of fabric
