It is something I do as a small (very small) business but I hope it inspires others to do the same. The good feeling of not disposing of these great old pieces and retaining the best of American workmanship is worth spreading!
Here for your inspiration is a recent set of before and after photos - in most cases, all that was needed was a great fabric!
|Wonderful settee in a versatile cream with a horizontal pattern - this would look great at the end of a bed!|
|I bought this chair from a lovely home around the corner - all it needed was a fresh new fabric and the original woodwork was lovely (sold)|
|I bought this chair from a consignment shop that was going out of business so the price was within my "sweet spot" range. I love the straight lines and the size is very versatile. These would be great at the ends of a dining room table!|
|I bought this set from a young couple who had used the set (already reupholstered once) in a nursery. The workmanship on the set was superb and it is really comfortable!|
|I bought this chair from a young couple moving to Texas. He had inherited it from his mother and didn't care for the purple butterfly fabric. It is a really well constructed Highland House chair and well worth redoing!|
|I bought this lovely set from a widower who was remarrying and moving in with a new wife - a wonderful gentleman. He talked about how his deceased wife had bought and used these chairs for years and had them in a place of honor in their home. All pieces are sold on eBay and link to website (slightly out of date awaiting reinstallation of computer equipment that supports this program - not apple-compatible)|
