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.

Wingback Chairs in Crushed Velvet

Two wingback chairs that belonged to a client’s family but were in a desperate need of an overhaul. New foam, webbing, fabric and legs gave a new lease of life to these grand old chairs.

The treasures you can pick up on the side of the road!!!!!! all you need is a little vision of what could be. This client found this chair during a council clean up and loved the shape. Once the fabric was picked – gorgeous velvet by Warwick, it was time to get to work.

Putting in new webbing
Rusty Springs

All the old layers were taken off, as well as the springs, as they were rusty and out of alignment.

The legs were stripped of old paint and polish  then it was time to put in new webbing, springs, hessian and padding and finally the fabric.

Pretty in Pink

Who doesn’t love FUSCHIA – a vibrant purplish red colour which looks absolutely amazing in velvet.

Fuchsia Buttons

 

 

This client was not scared of colour !!!!! She wanted a bright, bun buttoned bed head made, to go against a dark, purple wallpaper.

The Old but Most Comfortable lounge Chair

Ok we all have that chair that everybody in the family fights over – sometimes you are lucky and manage to get to it but after a while it more than looks a little lived in – Yep time for a revamp………..

This chair is an original Artifort Lounge chair and was covered in a brown, beige stripe wool – time for a change.

First off what material????? – in keeping with the original it had to be a wool – the client chose a fantastic wool fabric from Instyle – design ‘Mammoth’, colour ‘Decision’.

 

The Artifort Lounge chair has to be one of the most comfortable chairs there is and was a joy to recover.

 

Working with a top quality fabric makes all the difference.photo

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.
