"The Chair" Revamped..



Around Easter time we popped down to the Camberwell Market for a little look around and I managed to find this little gem for $10!
I had every intention of trying to recover it myself - however once I bought the fabric, I just didn't have the heart test out my upholstery skills on all that beautiful Amy Butler.
So I popped down to my local and the lovely Lauren created this for me... umm I mean Louise.


We are so pleased with it... what do you think!!


For the locals - I can highly recommended Lauren if your looking to cover something. Lauren's work is something special - you just have to look through the window to see the unique vintage patchwork stools, funky couches and fabric wall hangings.
It was practically ready the next day and she has a cupboard full of vintage fabrics, all folded in colour coordinated piles that make you feel like you have died and gone to fabric heaven.



I really had my heart set on this Amy Butler fabric but was quite temped to go with one she had in the shop. A special mention also to Jody from the Fabric Shoppe who's service is impeccable. If your looking for designer fabrics at a great price then this is where you go.


Happy Wednesday!
