Here is a quick little barstool rehab that I did. Not exciting but the client was pleased and that’s what counts the most!

The Deco Lady’s Daybed

LOVE this piece. This is a custom deco daybed that was in beautiful condition. Judgin from the construction techniques, I would say it was built in the 1930’s. The client wanted the change out the cover for something a little more stimulating. That is exactly what she got with this fabulous black and white graphic. It was fun to work outside the beige family of fabrics!

Au Revoir Cowboy

OK — It’s no secret that I don’t really care for slip covers. For the cost and labor, I think it’s just easier to reupholstered. I have to admit this one turned out pretty cute with the cowboy novelty fabric that the client selected.
The before shows the chair in a chintz ship cover and then the cowboy slip cover I made. The client was moving to New Mexico and wanted to have some western influence in her decor as soon as she unpack. I think she got it!

Suzie’s Deals

Suzie needed a little color on her futon daybed. I think she got it! I made all 6 of her new large 24″ pillow covers.

My date with a Dane

This Danish Modern lounge chair and ottoman was a fun little job. The original wool tweed had worn through and the owners want it replaced. The whole cover is a tailored tube that you slip over the padded frame. Once adjusted correctly, then the tufting secures the cover in place.

A nice comfortable straight back chair
January 22, 2012

This was a quick little redo for a new client. The customer had lamented how hard it is to find good sturdy new furniture that doesn’t break the bank. She found this little chair at a thrift shop and asked me to recover it.
Voila! A sturdy straight back chair for about $125 including the chair, reupholstery, new foam and fabric.

A slip that doesn’t show
January 21, 2012

This little Ottoman got a quick facelift with a slip cover. I padded the top panel so that it appears to be a tight upholstery job. I think the effect worked nicely. Not bad for someone that dislikes slipcovers. 🙂

Second time is the charm…
January 21, 2012

This is a little redo I did for a recent client. I learned how to build in lumbar support into the back cushion with this project. I am quite pleased with the final results… Even if the final results looks like I was trying to knock off Crate & Barrel!
