Upholstery Tack Strip: How-To Video

You guys have asked and asked and asked... and I haven't uploaded this because I just... well, I'm awkward in it! But here's a video of how I used the tack strips on my slipper chairs.

Some things to note:

  • I don't think I mentioned that you get this at your local upholstery shop until the very end, so I don't want you wondering the entire time... 
  • I'm sure it's obvious, but I was just using a fabric scrap, so the entire thing isn't upholstered. This was just to give you the gist (since I don't have anything to upholster "yet" - you'll hear my plan at the end of the video :-))
  • Yes, I really am that awkward/uncomfortable in front of people in real life.. I don't think it'll ever get better, so you'll just have to hear me smack my lips if I ever make any more videos!
  • Don't ask why I said "thank you" at the end... I just... don't know...

Let me know if I caused more confusion than answers. I'll try to redo it if it just doesn't make any sense at all.


  1. You are much to hard on yourself. You are very talented, not too mention, adorable, so give yourself credit. I learned from it, so the mission was accomplished and that's all that matters! As for the thank you at the end, well I think it's genetic. I mean, I've done it myself when leaving messages or silly stuff like that. So you are not alone! :)

  2. Gina, I agree with Lisa's comment above! You are adorable and so friendly in the video. (Not to mention that I love this idea!!)
