The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Hand-Restored Upholstery by SpruceHome

Craft & Design

Etsy’s Eric Beug profiles upholstery makers SpruceHome in this eye-catching video. Eric writes:

Amanda and Lizzie, two Austin, TX based gals, are combining a long tradition of skills with a savvy design eye. Like many in the Process series, there is so much fascinating effort that goes into their work that it’s difficult to distill it down to just a few short minutes.

SpruceHome have made a business not only upholstering vintage chairs, couches, and headboards, they also go so far as to make their own pillows and lampshades featuring the same vintage and designer textiles that they use for their furniture. Additionally they sling vintage wares such as lamps and tables to go hand in hand with the things that they make and re-envision. Part of their philosophy is that anyone can have the updated look to suit their home, without having to buy all brand new things — although everything they sell looks brand new.

    Thank you, Becky. This got me all star-eyed excited and ready to buy a staple gun!

    What is the name of that tool used to staple the springs to the bottom webbing of the chair, it would be so handy to have. Does anyone know if they are still available?

  3. Spruce says:

    We are so excited to see this here! We had such a great time shooting it, and think it turned out amazing. The name of the tool to staple the springs to the webbing is called a Klinch-it! You can find them online for sure. One place to find them is at the link below.
    Happy Upholstering!
