16 Minute Upholstery: A Video

About Kristen Van Loon

My name is Kristen Van Loon and this is the chronicle of my search for *Oomf!* Not only have I deemed myself qualified to revamp, repair, refurnish and refine my house, but I also jump into any DIY project that my friends, co-workers, family and practical strangers stumble upon. I would love to tell you that this is my full-time job and my complete life mission, but I make my bread and butter elsewhere and raise a daughter (Olivia). I have some experience but no time, no formal training and no money. My only saving grace is that I love figuring things out, I’m great at improvising and I’m always inspired. For the record, some things that I do (play with electricity, for one) may seem risky, and some of them are. I will always tell you what I’ve done, but I won’t ever suggest things for you that aren’t safe. Even though I push the envelope, I am only marginally incompetent. If sources (father, my brain, Google) tell me not to do something then I usually won’t. But if I do try and it blows up in my face (figuratively or literally) you will hear all about it, and you hopefully won’t attempt it. At the end of the day, I hope to inspire you. Space-Lift isn’t just a blog, it’s a verb. It’s an action that brightens your surroundings by assaulting everything that needs improvement. Nothing is off limits, and all possibilities will be considered.

  1. awesome job! love it!

  2. I have been eyeing up that same fabric at our local craft store. Love it. You are so much more thorough than I am… I would have just applied that fabric right over the existing fabric and not even bothered to pull out all those staples, but I am a little lazy 🙂

    • Ahahahaha! I love your honesty! Trust me, I am not inherently thorough, I would rather not go the extra mile, it’s just that I am so darn picky later on that I wish I would have! Also, the old fabric was textured and you’d have known it was under there; there was no getting out of it for me.
