Freshly Upholstered

Hubs inherited these wee pieces of furniture and we've been meaning to update them for some time now. Over the years they have become hard, uncomfortable and frayed. Here we are trying out some new fabrics on for size at a local upholsterer.

Would love to tone down the flower motif ... a lot [or actually completely!].

Look at that sad colonial-style foot stool with its sagging, poofy thing on top. Ugliness.

Oh, that is so much better. A little faux leather does the trick I think. And it was a good decision to loose the poofy thing on top. I really like the clean, simple lines on top that contrast with the more curvy and interesting bottom.

Oh, and these swishy, clean, velvety stripes make me so happy. Bye-bye tiny, needle-pointy flowers.

And my favourite ... the Spud-sized gentlemans chair for his room.
