Before and Afters: Summer Scorchers!

Hello folks! We have another round of before and afters for your perusal, and these are hot as the Texas summer sun! Perhaps you’re a/c-bound and in need of some indoor activities to amuse you? Let these makeovers encourage a cool rejuvenation in your home! We’ll help!

We’ve seen this situation before: cat-scratched and soiled sadness.

The glorious transformation above! We removed the skirt to update and lighten and covered it in a sweet Duralee textured velvet. Unstoppable! (Fabric is Duralee #36166-35 in color Tangerine.)

The next redo was just as satisfying. A dingy Queen Anne chair gets fresh in Alan Campbell’s Deauville in Navy on tinted linen. I covet this fabric!

The glorious graphics on this chair are irresistible! I’ll show it to you from the side!

Next, we recovered a family heirloom – literally! This chair left our client’s family in the ‘seventies and was later bought back from the second owners to join the new generation of the patriarch’s family. Can you imagine? Sentimentality reigned, and reupholstery rules! Before…

After: it’s hard to believe it’s the same chair! Material used was Universal Leather’s Pearlized Croc in color Oyster, topped off with shiny decorative nailheads. Outrageous! See it below!

Another eye popper is next! Before, in a bland off-white….

After, the bergère chair is loud and proud in Duralee coordinating prints! Patterns used are #42254-215 for the main/body medallion print, and seat’s and outside back’s zigzag is #42253-215 . Frame was painted a glossy white. Fantastic!

Another chair, beginning with a dishwater  fabric (I’m sure it was lovely at one time…), gets gleaming clean! Before:

And after! Fabric used is Fabricut’s Lodge Stripe in color Sunflower. Immaculate!

This last one will make you jealous!!! Around here, we do a heap of outdoor boxed cushions. One of our inspired clients had a little poolside classic that required something extra. Eat your heart out! Before in blue and white… the previous cushion had seen better days.
