Before and Afters!

Happy Holidays one and all! We have not been holding out our spectacular makeovers from you on purpose, we’ve just been BIZ-ZAY! We know you have been too! It’s long overdue for us to share with you another round of successful makeovers – they happen daily! Check out some of our recent favorites below…

First in line in before-and-after heaven is a piece found down the block at Corner Collector’s Market. Needs some serious TLC. Just a dirty little thing.


A shabby old chair needs some loving!

For the makeover, this chair gets a black gloss lacquer and an equally rich black velvet to match (Duralee‘s solid velvet in onyx). This is a retail piece still available for sale in our showroom. Versatile, rich, a generous seat. Will work with any interior!

A sweet makeover!!! Good as new!

Another retail piece we’ve madeover is this number. An armchair old, full of dirt, and originally had a cane back. We found the caning underneath when we stripped it!


Oldie but goodie - time for a change.

We reupholstered in a large scale houndstooth chenille and plain weave (Duralee‘s houndstooth pattern number is hyperlinked for your convenience.) Visually striking while keeping it neutral. Comes in a black and cream and red and cream as well!

Great chair that can stand out or blend in at your whim. For sale at Spruce!

This next job was for a client – possibly one of the most fun moms ever! She had this killer kids recliner upholstered in a graphic cut velvet that she picked up at the infamous Mood fabric retailer (I’ve hyperlinked to the fabric itself – comes in 5 colors!) Check it out!

Baby recliner after!!!

Wow! Adorable, hilarious.

We reupholstered a trio of chairs that are now the epitome of opulence and glamour. See below the two wooden side chairs and arm chair using a hand-printed Galbraith and Paul fabric. (Again, hyperlink is to fabric page; “ovals” on pewter velvet, color berry. Plain pewter velvet used for the insides on  armchair.) Absolutely beautiful.

Beautiful side chair to coordinate with the antiques!

We worked out a fabulous large ottoman with a cool design. The customer supplied us with an amazing embroidered Madeline Weinrib suzani (called “Pink Sommers”), and we filled in with a white and black canvas. Drab to Fab!

So unique! Now it's a statement!

Lastly, we created a custom headboard based on one our client saw out and about. No before – because we made it from scratch!

She's a beaut!

The client chose this romantic large-scale Quadrille printed cotton (print “Henriot”, color Lilacs on ecru.) Just beautiful.

As always, if you have a hankering for a makeover or a fabrication – give us a call. We can do it 99% of the time (we’ve even upholstered a bathtub!). If you’re lost for ideas, Spruce will be happy to help you with inspiration and direction.

Happy Holidays again! Be safe and well! We’ll see you after Christmas!
