I paint almost all day almost every day, so I sometimes get a little bored, simply painting on canvas, so I throw in things like wood working, sculpting, sewing, furniture decorating, and especially love reupholstering to revive an otherwise trashy piece into a fun treasure. Below are some items I have given new life with fun fabrics, trim, and even some feather edging on an awesome vintage set I found at the flea market and revived with some tiger stripe and even a little vintage purple polka dot for fun!
Junky to spunky Bench redo
this bench I personally liked better above... before I reupholstered it, but to make the customer happy, below... I really revamped it!
This sitting area in a retirement home is much more fun with the eclectic mix of new and old to give the residents a less boring, not so institutional place to sit and visit.
I trimmed the southwestern geometric wood pattern to soften it some and sanded before painting and reupholstering this
Vintage Flea Market
Settee, Love seat, and Chair Up Do
I reupholstered this set with fun fabrics and even some feather boa trim along the edges
I found a great vintage purple polka dot fabric to accent for a little unexpected spice!
