{from drab to fab!}

Here's another before and after!
I found this chair at a thrift store & after making sure the caning was in good condition, I bought it! All it needed was a fresh coat of white paint, new padding, and a funky fabric seat!
My original intentions for this chair were to sell it, but now I'm not sure! It looks so good in my craft room! Hmmm....we'll have to see!
In the mean time, be on the look out for some great, reupholstered chairs for sale in my upholstery shop! They'll be up soon!

WOW! That is SO great! That makes me want to re-upholster something. Do you use upholstery fabric or does anything work?

I refinished some chairs very similar to this, and in a blur one day used it as a time out chair for my 3 year old. Then he picked a golfball sized hole in the back rest. What a freaking turd!

thanks for saying hellooooooo :)
