Up-cycling Inspiration

More up-cycling project inspiration! These chairs were so bad I don’t even have the ‘before’ photo – but picture the first upholstery project your mum did in the 70s (sorry mum!). 40 years on these went to Trees Furniture in Newmarket (www.treesfurniture.co.nz) who respiring them, added aged leather to the base of the seat and skins to the back, some studding to give them a bit of an edge and they are super comfortable now.

And since it must be in the genes, I did some DIY myself a few weeks back – spraying this faded Freedom chest with multiple coats of black high gloss gave it a few years reprieve…amazing what you already have that might just need a little imagination.
