The red chair.

The photo above is the ‘before’ photo of an arm-chair that the boys have in their bedroom.  It’s from the 1930’s and we’ve had it for around 15 years.  We had in upholstered in 2000 in this textured Warrick fabric.  Ok textured fabric was all the rage 13 years ago and was now starting to look a little faded and  ‘daggy’.

We took it upholsterer Colin Barabus, of Barabus Upholstery to bring it up to date.  He has done a wonderful job.  This time we didn’t go crazy and buy expensive fabric.  I did see some beautiful fabrics  at $40 – $60 per metre.  I ended up finding a perfectly good fabric at Spotlight for $7.00 per metre.
