So I am gonna wrap up the last few weeks for ya... I have been working like a crazy person and the next moth is not getting any better! Yay!! but BOO!! And on top of all the craziness, we decided it is time to sell the house! So, between showings, soccer games, school, Relief society duties (yikes) and life, I am squeezing in some work.
First off is Holly. She has a great website and store, Poppy Seed Projects. Wow! Well, she had a rocker with an ottoman that needed some help. She wanted to get this done before they had all the family and friends over for her baby's blessing. Which, I can't blame her!
Nothing special right? Well not anymore! Its gonna be the star of the nursery, baby aside... She wanted to do a brown and white combo, but how? This is how! BAM!
So great right?! I grabbed some off white fabric that matched the polka dots and made the piping out of it. If this does not pop for you, you should probably get your eyes checked...
Are you ready for some stripes???
So my next client actually found me from Better After. She features a couch a I did a while back and my client just loved it! And lucky for her, we live in the same state! She has actually been super patient with me...She contacted me a few months back but I was busy trying to get stuff finished up for clients during the holidays. So we put her on the schedule for March. She came across this super rad settee on ksl for $15!! Now some people may not love ksl classifieds, which is fine, but man, the treasures people sell is great, even better when its for pennies!! My client already had her fabric and when she dropped off the couch I was in heaven.
Once I got all the fabric stripped off, the transformation began. First off, painting. She wanted the frame white, which I am a huge sucker for! She decided that she did not want to keep the button tufting, which was a good idea. Her fabric was a really wide stripe and it would throw the lines way off. So I had to fill all the holes and then smooth that sucker out. I got a new toy in the mail that made this project a million times better! My sweet husband, bless his heart bought me a staple gun a while back. While it worked great, it just was hard to use and I could never get it to maneuver how I needed it and it was almost, dare I say.. too powerful. So I finally bought myself a Fasco staple gun that freakin ROCKS!! She defiantly will be staying in tool belt... So after many hours of striping, painting and reupholstering, I give you the stripes!
I Love it!! She chose an outdoor fabric which is great, if it gets spilled on, it won't stain or set in but rather just bead up and roll right off. I can't wait till she she's it.! It funny because the polka dot and stripe fabric in this post are from the same company and are the same colors.
So whats next you ask... Well, I am in the middle of working on a sectional that needs to be done by the 7th of April! (she called me last week in a panic) She wanted to have it done in time for her daughters baptism, and more importantly, to stick it to her mother in law!! LOL! So of course I was up for the challenge! I also have to redo 8 chairs for a country club. And to top out the month, a couch and a few chairs from some new clients. Please pray for my sanity, and my family.... So if you are wanting anything done, you have to wait till May!! Let me know if you are wanting a spot and I will pencil you in:) I hope this holds you over for another week or so.... peace out peeps!
