Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was great…although I didn’t have time to work on any projects around the condo. Oh well, there’s always next weekend!
What I DID work on was completing some reupholstery projects for a client. Lemme tell ya, I’ve been reupholstering like a mad woman! Let me show you what I did.
First of all, let me say that these items are all for this client (remember me talking about this color palette?).
Now I dove right into these projects, and then realized that I forgot to take “before” photos of them. I was able to dig up some photos that show what they looked like before, but the quality isn’t great since they’re not true “before” photos. But you’ll get the idea.
First up, six dining chairs. Now the best I can do is show you the fabric that was on the chairs before:
And now they’re covered in a nice spice fabric with green accents.
Next up is a rocking chair. Here’s the “before”:
And the “after”:
(Pay no attention to the floor. It’s all being redone.)
And last, this mission style recliner and ottoman, shown in the middle of this photo. I had a hard time finding a before pic on this, but hopefully this will suffice:
And now it looks like this:
The rocking chair and recliner/ottoman will eventually go back into the study (green room pictured above), which is the room that now looks something like this:
(These are now stained and looking GORGEOUS. More to come on that.)
Opposite this massive wall of desks and cabinets is a fireplace, and the rocking chair and recliner will form a seating area in front of that fireplace.
We’re making headway on this home! I’m looking forward to it being finished so I can show you all of the before and after room shots.
So how about you? How was your weekend? Did you work on any fun projects?
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
