before and after


remeber that purple dresser i said i was going to revamp...?

well, i turned it into a chair. Just kidding! that would be amazing!

no, actually it is still sitting there, but there is a good reason! i can't find a place to paint it!

anyway, here is project no.2 (of 63..) but this one will have a happy ending, because someone else is doing it!

My husband picked this lovely chair up for 11 euro, and then i sat right through it (it's not the first thing my bum has been known to anniliate), which he was delighted with. Again, not really.. however, it did speed along nicely the revamp that was necessary, so this one has gone off to be recovered!. Now, when she comes back, she will be covered in proper upholstery fabric, in oatmeal.. so, actually she wont look much different to how she is now... but she will be quality! and you will be able to sit on her again...! always a bonus for a chair....

LOL You're so funny, Sarah!
I was so curious to see the "before", as you said, that it didn't look different in your new post :) Your Mr. Upholsterer has done a great job. Does it cost much?
I need to do my sofa too.
