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!
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 furniture upholstery job!
Does this make you want to freshen up something in your house?
