Before Makeover

 

This ottoman was well and truly ready for some tender love and care.

 

A beautiful aztec inspired fabric – medina watermelon from the Anthropology collection from  warwick fabric house was decided on.

I decided to update the ottoman with a simple look, finishing with gorgeous studs around the base.

Now the ottoman is ready to be used again.  The client can’t believe the transformation.

Stripey – the bold bedroom stool

I found this material a while ago and have just been waiting for the right project to use it.

 

Yes – the colours are a bit out there, but I think they are fun, lively and will brighten up a bedroom,  giving it a pop of colour.Stripey bedroom stool Old bedroom Stool Old bedroom stool Stripey bedroom stool

 

 

The old stool definitely needed a makeover.

Now to decided whether to change the colour of the stool to an antique silver black or just leave it. Will have a think,  in the mean time I may make some cushions with the grey velvet and stripe.

Sometimes the simple jobs turn out to be the most effective.

I have two amazing retro stools – Ok they are looking a bit worst for wear but I love the colour and they are comfortable.

After careful consideration about maybe putting on new vinyl I decided to keep the integrity of the stools and just redo the buttons.

When I took the base of the stool off I found there was a piece of vinyl covering the bottom of the stool that I could use to make new buttons without disturbing the rest of the stool YA…………

In the end it was an easier job than I first thought but very satisfying.
