You may have heard about our new book, Spruce: A Step-by-Step Guide to Upholstery and Design.

It released just a couple of weeks ago, and Design*Sponge and Pretty Prudent shared how they excited they were. This week we launched the Spruce blog tour, and we’ve already had three different posts from some amazing home bloggers:

Monday, 11/4 Bromeliad
Tuesday, 11/5 How About Orange
Wednesday, 11/6 Our Humble Abode
And that’s not all! Tomorrow we’ll have a post from HGTV’s Design Happens, and next week, four more of our favorite home bloggers will share about Spruce:
Tuesday, 11/12 Making It Lovely
Wednesday, 11/13 Our Style Stories
Thursday, 11/14 4 Men 1 Lady
Be sure to check them all out for chances to win a copy of Spruce so you can start your own upholstery project!
For those of you who have an ugly chair that you’d love to reupholster, don’t miss The Spruce Ugliest Chair Contest on Facebook! Just leave a comment in the contest post with a photo of your ugly chair, and one winner will be chosen at random to receive an upholstery tool kit, $200 of fabric, custom design recommendations by Spruce author Amanda Brown, and a signed copy of her book! There are already some pretty ugly entries!
If you live in the southeast, you may even have an opportunity to learn some of Amanda’s upholstery techniques in person! Amanda and her “Sprucettes” hit the road this week and are traveling to 10 cities, teaching upholstery classes and hosting book signing parties. Find the schedule of events at to see whether Spruce is coming to your city.
