Mom's Tufted Ottoman
A simple black ottoman, with fancy diamond buttons of course, it is for my mother after all. This ottoman was a coffee table in it's former life and I'm pretty sure we all know someone who had one of these. You'd never guess now though, it looks classy and ...

Damask Dining Room Chairs
I super love these chairs so much. They were fun to work and turned out to be so beautiful. A friend of mine gave me the chairs for free because they were looking so rough. The springs were poking through the seats. We used indoor/outdoor fabric to make the...
I super love these chairs so much. They were fun to work and turned out to be so beautiful. A friend of mine gave me the chairs for free because they were looking so rough. The springs were poking through the seats. We used indoor/outdoor fabric to make them a little more wipeable and they're ...

Dining Chair Refinish
The upholstery on these dining room chairs had seen better days. It was stained and torn and ready for a refresh which I was more than happy to take care of. Here's the before, just a little more modern

Couch Fit For Royalty
Not everyone can pull off a purple velvet couch but my Aunt Margo is definitely that person. This was also the grossest piece I've ever worked on. The stuffing was straw, it shed gunk if you looked at it wrong. It felt great to strip it down and replace eve...
Not everyone can pull off a purple velvet couch but my Aunt Margo is definitely that person. This was also the grossest piece I've ever worked on. The stuffing was straw, it shed gunk if you looked at it wrong. It felt great to strip it down and replace everything. Brown velvet... no thank you ...

Brandie's Head board
My friend Brandie wanted a new headboard and footboard so we got to work. She had a tufting vision that turned out really beautifully. I'll be the first to admit that tufting isn't my forte, I'm working on it but I could use some more practice. This one tur...
I'll be the first to admit that tufting isn't my forte, I'm working on it but I could use some more practice. This one turned out okay but I look forward to my next tufting efforts. We used her old pieces as a base and then I got to beat them up, pull off trim, add some wood.

The One That Got Away
I need to delete this picture. It makes me sad to look at it but I just couldn't bring myself to delete it forever so instead I'll blog it for memories. I had a friend call me one day and say hey there's this couch I keep seeing on the side of the road for ...
I need to delete this picture. It makes me sad to look at it but I just couldn't bring myself to delete it forever so instead I'll blog it for memories. I had a friend call me one day and say hey there's this couch I keep seeing on the side of the road for free, do you want it? Boy did I ever!

Computer Chair, Second Update
This is the second time I've updated this chair that we use at our computer. I didn't hate the black but the first update fixed the incredibly saggy seat. I wished I had realized before I put it all back together just how uncomfortable the chair was though....
This is the second time I've updated this chair that we use at our computer. I didn't hate the black but the first update fixed the incredibly saggy seat. I wished I had realized before I put it all back together just how uncomfortable the chair was though. It really needed some new foam so I ...

Silver Slipper Chair
And clearly a Purple Velvet Couch needs some Silver Slipper Chairs to go along with it. These chairs were found on Kijiji and they were in really nice condition except they'd obviously sat in front of a window and had some serious sun damage. They make a mu...
These chairs were found on Kijiji and they were in really nice condition except they'd obviously sat in front of a window and had some serious sun damage. They make a much better silver set and looked incredible with the Purple Velvet Sofa (winter hours makes taking decent pictures difficult.) ...

Two Tone Wingback - Rose's
This chair was such a happy accident. We ordered fabric and when it came it was the wrong fabric, not what we'd ordered but everyone liked it even more. It was a more expensive fabric so I hadn't even seen it and we got it at the cheaper price. Here's the b...

Ugly Chair
This chair It definitely earned the title Ugly Chair.See how it's a greenish colour? Don't be fooled, it's actually bright yellow, just look at the fabric that's hiding underneath. This chair actually goes with the Quatrafoil Couch . I found that couch on K...
This chair actually goes with the Quatrafoil Couch. I found that couch on Kijiji for free and when I contacted the seller they said they would put it outside in the alley for me to grab. What they really meant was it's been sitting in the alley for some time, it's pretty gross has snow on it but ...
