enviro-mental archives: Reupholstery love at Design*Sponge
I'd like to have the talent of these Design*Sponge readers, who sent in shots of their reupholstery projects.
Up top, Alexa takes a set of tired peach cushions and makes them crisp and relevant to the cane design of the chair body.
Next, Amy's new, modern fabric and stain pulls the sagging orange into the 21st century. The chair becomes a work of art and fits perfectly into its niche.
On the bottom, Stephanie's slipcover and pillow updates the mid-century chair and makes it much cozier and more attractive.
I give a lot of credit to people who can see the potential in a piece and give it another chance.
