Vodka Sunrise + more upholstery

Friday, July 16th, 2010

OK, so I’ve finished the loveseat small-scale upholstery project, but now I’ve got the upholstery bug!  I want to do another project.  This one will be a much smaller project.

I have this old chair that was made over by someone (not sure who.  It was a hand-me-down) with fabric and staples.  This is an option if you don’t have sewing skills, but if you have some very basic sewing skills you can easily do the tutorial that I will be posting next week.  It is a chair make-over with a cool embellishment detail.  Here is the chair before the makeover.

While I plan and scheme on how to make this chair into a utilitarian piece of art, let’s make some cocktails! Not everyone loves tequila so here is an alternative to the tequila sunrise.

Vodka Sunrise

2 oz Vodka
4 oz Orange juice
1/2 oz Grenadine
Maraschino cherry

Mix vodka and orange juice in a glass with crushed ice.  Pour grenadine over the ice for the sunrise effect.  Add a maraschino cherry for garnish.  Enjoy!

Look for my chair upholstery make over on the blog next week and don’t deny your DIY!
