Mr. Modtomics first "Before & After"! Got it at an estate sale and used it to further my upholstery skills. Status: Gone...but not forgotten


You know, the orange looks like crap in pictures but it didn't look too bad to the naked eye! It looked a lot better after the HOURS of staple pulling...

...and pattern cutting and re-stapling and lining up color patterns and trial and error. I like to think I

did a pretty good job. I'm sorta OCD about getting the corners right. I think that's the difference

between a pro job and an armature / hack job.


I think I spent about 4 hours on this chair. I got the striped fabric at another estate sale. It was actually

curtains! After I got it done and had some time to live with it, I wasn't exactly CRAZY about the

colors. They grew OFF me.

So I put it up for sale on my ad. It now lives in a happy new home! I'm just glad I worked real hard

on it and wasn't embarrassed or felt like I had to apologize for my workmanship. Take a look at the

BIG pics on my Flickr pages and tell me what ya think. Would YOU recommend me to a friend?
