Very productive weekend of renovating furniture and upholstering armchairs 

Very productive weekend of renovating furniture and upholstering armchairs 

It was a rainy weekend. The weather and greyness made me feel quite lazy,  but it did not stop me from finishing a few projects.  It was nice and fulfilling to stay at home and bring a few things back to live.

Re-upholstered armchair.

Lovely mustard-yellow fabric and chalky finish waxed wooden frame in graphite.

I have started the chair on Thursday afternoon from painting the frame, and I have completed renovating finished it over the weekend.

Renovated retro dresser.

Chalky grey and graphite finish with a silver coating at the countertop. All waxed and polished.

Renovated dresser / sideboard. that was in my hallway.

Hand Sewn Sheep – a free toy pattern
