I just finished recovering my estate-sale find Mission-style wood rocker. For my first upholstery job of this kind, the chair turned out fantastic. Looking back on it, however, there are definitely a few items I wish I’d done or that I would suggest for other do-it-yourselfers out there before you dive into a project like this.

We have a contractor coming this weekend to finally take a look at our bathroom. We moved into our house in early 2011, a cute 1922 Craftsman bungalow in NE Portland. The previous owner was making updates to the home in hopes of flipping the house for a profit, unfortunately, the market was terrible and he ended up having to sell the house mid project. This left the house with more than a handful of projects and renovations that still needed to be completed, the upstairs bathroom being one of them.
