Wow - what a makeover I have for you today! I'm so excited - obviously so much so that I failed to tell you what Tuesday customer inspiration is all about (in case you aren't familiar with it).
Every Tuesday - if my wonderful customers take the time to snap a photo or two of something they've purchased from Jubilee Furniture and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org - I show you said photo(s) with the hopes of inspiring you to see used furniture in a new and creative way. Not every post is a complete makeover - many of the things at Jubilee Furniture are fabulous just the way they are - but wait until you see what Naomi did to a very sad chair she found at the store.
Here's her email:
Hi! I had been looking for a cute chair for my "crafting nook" to no avail (I didn't have much to spend, that always slows me down!) - I found your blog/website and was excited to read about what you do for the community AND some of the cute makeovers your customers had done.
My husband and I have a few goodwill finds we had made over - mostly painting furniture - but I hadn't done a chair before - so stepping into the store on Saturday, we were looking for something CHEAP (so if I ruined it it would be no big loss!) - we found the perfect chair FOR $5.50! And took it home for a makeover!
I found some clearance fabric at Wal-Mart, so total, the project was less than $45!
So attached is my picture of the makeover (I saw you were asking for inspiration posts), I hope to come visit again soon for more furniture :)
I cannot believe how someone - with what sounds like no re-upholstery skills - was able to create a multi-fabric job with contrasting trim! Wow. So. Impressed. The chair looks amazing!
Thanks to Naomi for turning our ugly duckling chair into a swan!
Stay warm, dear reader! See you back here on Friday!
