Sorry to those of you who have seen this post before. I did a little editing of it and assumed when I re-posted it, it would go back to it's original spot (duh). I am really just posting it so I have a record of my old projects.
Our computer is on the go-slow and just about driving me crazy. I am sooo wanting to read all of your lovely blogs but it would take me all day :o( I've put in my order for a new computer so hopefully all will be well soon.
My first ever project (above)
Above is the chair of a lounge suite (2.5 seater and 2 chairs) I bought at a garage sale for $50. I sold it for $1000.
Above and below. I bought these 2 at a garage sale for $20. They were identical until I covered them and changed the feet.
So now that I have got the hang of the scanner I can put up some photos of my upholstery projects. I did a 12 session upholstery class and then basically taught myself. As sometimes happens, word soon spread and I found myself inundated with requests to upholster lounge suites and chairs. It was a fast learning curve and yet I am still (10 years later) still learning as I go. I love a challenge...even if it does have me in a crying heap on the floor saying "I'll never be able to finish this". The end result is always worth it...bit like child birth huh? Okay , nothing like child birth, although I do recall having a few staples removed, ouch, lol.
Today's images are of some of the projects I did for myself. I prefer those as I get to choose the fabric. It's hard to spend so much time and effort on something when the fabric you've been given is not what you would have chosen but I did learn to appreciate that everyone has different tastes!
Once again, sorry about the poor picture quality, argh.
