Apart from doing the design and interior of the house I have quite a lot of furniture renovation projects to complete.
Well, only two sofas to reupholster, four armchairs, six dining chairs, beds, display cabinets and various sizes of tables. Not much at all!!
This is all good as I love doing this kind of thing. The only problem is I don’t have any where to do the work at the moment as my garage is stuffed to the gills with all the furniture that’s waiting to be worked on.
I may have to wait until the garage door is on at the new house and work there, so that all this excitment can start!
Most of the furniture needs painting and/or reupholstering, so I do need a bit of space! If anyone has a spare barn that I can use please let me know!!
Here are the types of things that I will be tackling! I’m mixing it up with the furniture, mixing old and new. Ricks not too sure, he can’t quite get it and is worried that his gorgeous new house will look a bit Steptoe and son, but I said “Trust me”, those immortal words.
I’ve got a paint spray gun and I’m not afraid to use it!
These two beauties below where given to us by an aunt. Yes they do need some work, but as they say they have good bones and with some hard work they should look something like the images below!
This is a great combination of white paint and chevron fabric but this kind of colour may not be practical with a house full of boy’s!
Gorgeous chevrons with nutella and muds stains! I may have to go for a darker colour, shame!
I really like the way that the bold fabric and white woodwork unifies all the very different styles of dining chair.
Yes I know that this chair below looks scary but I had a feeling that it was a great shape underneath that plum fabric. This chair was given to us by a cousin of Ricks, who was going to burn it!! (Yes I know, you are thinking I can see why)! After we stripped off the plum fabric we unearthed a gorgeous little 50’s wing chair in green velvet.( I didn’t take a photo of the green velvet and now it’s burried in the gills of the garage, so another before and after photo will follow later)! It needs reupholstering as the velvet is a bit worn, but once done it should resemble the grey chair pictured below!
Please, use plenty of imagination!
From vile to style!
So watch this space, when I have space and time to get going!
Have you ever tackled anything like this?
