A New Direction for Wydeven Designs - You Choose Fabric Pieces

I get at least one or two questions a week asking if I can redo a piece of furniture in another fabric OR if I have another piece just like it that I can do in another fabric.  They love the piece but cannot use the fabric I chose.  Each item I sell is a unique find - I do not have a warehouse (or space for a warehouse) of pieces waiting to be redone.  I am currently looking for specific pieces for four clients because they have fallen in love with something on my site but want it in another fabric!

I have resisted selling "before" pieces because it so hard to imagine how great these pieces can look redone.  I am going to try to list more pieces under a category called "You Choose Fabric" which shows photos of pieces before they are redone and some fabrics that would work.  The pricing I've established includes the selection of a fabric from my vast collection (I can share photos and swatches when we get to that point); expert upholstery work by the masters at Song's/Lee's Upholstery in Norcross, GA (around the corner from my home); and, sometimes additional items like a set of accent pillows.  Special treatments like trims and brass heads would be extra as well as refurbishing the woodwork with a new enamel color (clean-up and touch-up of woodwork is of course a standard treatment and included).

SO ... we'll see how this goes and I may do more of it.  Here are some of the pieces currently being sold as "You Choose Fabric" on ebay.
