Nip and tuck; Furniture Reupholstery; Guest

20 May 2010

Here is a great little party link I wanted to show you from Allison at Design Life.  It just goes to show what you can do with your existing pieces:

We made some exciting progress in my client’s Sun Room today!
I purchased this new chair at a great price!  Inexpensive enough that we had enough money in our “chair budget” to refinish and reupholster in some fabulous fabric!
and AFTER!
I found this fabulous fabric at Robert Allen and upholstered the seat & inside chair back.  I found a great faux leather for the outside seat back, for an interesting contrast!
I did a French Grey wash on the finish &I love it the new look!
We also decided to add a bit of foam to the seat and back cushion to give it a softer feel.  What a difference it makes!
Oh and have I mentioned how much I adore this lamp I purchased at Global Views? Perfect for the space!

My client also had an old sleeper sofa. I had confidence we could find a great fabric and have it reupholstered and bring this baby into 2010!

I think it looks great! I also had my upholsterer (who did a fabulous job!) raise the sofa a few inches to help with the scale of the sofa.  This helps it better relate to the built in seating & tall dining table.
I found this console table on Craigslist for a great price a few days ago.  We’re going to purchase this and revamp it to go behind the sofa!

I love a good upholstery job!
Does this make you want to freshen up something in your house?
Thanks Allison for linking up to the party!

I agree...amazing diff in the sofa! I always wonder how much it cost to have someting upholstered. I'm always guessing whether it's worth to buy an item second hand if I have to have it recovered, any hints?

Okay, I want the name and number of that upholsterer....and prescreen him would ya? Will he take sexual favors? b/c his talent does all kinds of things to me!

Was that a little much for my first comment? I do read way too much of myfavoriteandmybest.com
