A Cinderella Story

A few weeks ago I posted images of some items that I'd picked up at the local op shop and sent off to the upholsterer. Well, yesterday they were delivered and I was pleasantly surprised at the tranformation. This $50 chaise and ottoman:


Now look like this:


This poor old $20 armchair:


Has been transformed Cinderella-like into this:


These $2 retro bar stools:


Look very 70s St Tropez in fabric from Ici et La:


I think the red and black look very cosy snuggled together with the cold westerly blowing outside:


Also, the house above the boatshed is slowly being transformed from this:


To this:


Here is the street view:


Which now looks like this:


Quite an improvement don't you think? Now for some more winter projects to keep me occupied over the next few months.

Gosh you've certainly done a great job with those units! I love the black chair and the other seat, very cosy for winter.

Absolutely sumptuous! I'm loving the new look - inside and out. You really have the eye.

Wow, they have come up well!! And the house colour too. I'm a sucker for deep rich colours, so eyeing that red ottoman with delight. Seems a bit stronger palette than some of your other boatshed chic??

Love the furniture redos, the black and red do look great together and I love the stools. The exterior is looking amazing so far, you have been busy!
Enjoy your week!
