Turn Around

After several days of calling around town to find an affordable upholsterer, I finally settled on an out-of-town business recommended by a friend of a friend (you can see where this is going, can’t you?). Two weeks later, my chair was delivered … with the reverse side of the fabric showing.

But I soon discoverd that I am the one in the wrong because I did not indicate which side I wanted to be the front.

Lesson learned: Communicate with your upholsterer! Face-to-face meetings are invaluable in making sure you get exactly what you want.
