I finally saved up enough change to get my 1860's Victorian 3 piece Suite recovered! I sent the pieces off to the upholsterer the first part of December. I was so excited when he called to tell me it was finished! The pieces had a fairly nice fabric to begin with, but the purple color did not go with anything in our home. We have a decidedly "Hemingway" eclectic decor. So, after purchasing some wildly fabulous Cheetah Fabric from Ballard Designs, I couldn't resist using it on this Suite. I was thrilled when it was delivered a few nights ago! Below you can see the Before & After pics of my perfect pieces.
I just LOVE how they all turned out!
Next month I am sending a 1930's Channel Back chair to the upholsterer. I'll share some of those pics just as soon as it is finished ~ Au Revoir!
