Cane chairs - Before and After

Before (above)

After (below)

I picked up this set of 2 cane chairs and small table recently and after a quick spray paint and replacing the upholstery on the chairs, am so happy with the result. Yet another project that I am supposed to be selling but it looks so at home in my living room..... for now anyway.

I am still having blogger issues so thanks for bearing with me!

For anyone interested, I sell my stuff on ebay (username: grootsww) and I have a couple of things at Sandy's store at the Woollongabba Antique Centre at the moment.

Dining Chair Project

Okay, it's been a while since I last posted and I see blogger hasn't got itself sorted yet so my text will follow my photos as I can't get it to appear at the top of the post *sigh*.
I picked up an old set of dining chairs a few months back. I think I paid around $30 for the set. New black paint and fabric has made such a difference. The new owner was very happy with them.
I did a pamphlet drop a while back letting people in my neighbourhood know I was available to reupholster their chairs and I have to date had one job which was a set of dining chair slip-covers. The "customer" was more than satisfied and I think it may mean some repeat business which is what you want!!
My camera is out of action so I'm not sure when I'll be back but I shall return.
Thanks for all the supportive and encouraging comments that continue to arrive in my in box. They give me as much a thrill now as they did when I first began blogging :o)
