This chair was a real design challenge, but I am thankful for the chance to stretch.  My client loved the result!!

One more chair saved!!!

My client got this chair for free many many many years ago.  She was ready to give it up, but I'm glad she changed her mind.  It had major problems.  When I went to sit in it,  my rear-end hit the concrete.  This chair needed a complete over haul.  Springs, webbing, cotton, batting, foam, etc.  So I gave her the works.


BEFORE-Filthy and needing some love

My favorite part of this job is seeing the end result.  Now I hope this chair will be a family favorite.





My quality control department gave it an
A+
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ



HAPPY TUESDAY!

Recycle, Recycle, Recycle!!

I love rescuing furniture that has potential.  This piece had pretty lines.  I thought it could be really elegant with a little help.

BEFORE-

White can make a large piece dainty and less imposing in a room.

AFTER- I used old fencing for the back panel.


Now she's full of my "pretties" and I store my Bosch and crock pot underneath when I'm not using them.  I have a very small kitchen, so counter space is limited.


Full of all of my favorite things.



 A dresser that was in pieces.
I bought this for pennies because it was in seperate parts.  It had tons of damage and was destined to be painted.  I chose a distressed blue and used rope for handles.  I think I like it.


BEFORE-still working on making the bottom drawer fit

Happy Wednesday
