Looking back at some great transformations

Here are just a few of the chairs I have been able to transform  over the last couple of years ...
All as an untrained DIY upholsterer, and (mostly) using my own fabric designs.

Before and after...
 






 


 

 


Do you have something which needs a transformation?

Below, this is the sun room, which has only just become tidy/organised enough to be photo worthy! I picked up the "Barcelona" lounge frame for free via Gumtree, adding new foam and sub seat structure - and of course some fabulous bold upholstery!

After skipping the last Handmade Market in March, I'm back... and it's on for two huge days this long weekend.
