Before and After

You may remember me posting about the 500 mile yard sale back in August. One of my finds was this little chair with great bones. I paid $30 for it, but it needed a little bit of work! So, here it is after getting cleaned up, stained black and reupholstered. I think it was a success...especially for the price.

Before - the fabric was stained and the seat foam and padding were rotten. Not to mention that the finish was dated and ugly.

In progress - The piping is ripped off and the wood has been stained black.

After - great new fabric and a cute little lumbar pillow.


  1. You did a great job. The chair looks terrific!!


  2. Excellent work - you are so talented.
    I agree with This Free Bird above - agreat job indeed! Hope you are well. XX

  3. It looks so classic now. I love it and am so impressed with your eye for a find. Rhonda

  4. Stunning! You are so talented, my dear! How is it going in TN? Are you liking the new job and everything?
