Before and After: Dated Thrift Store Find to Modern Seating

Before and After: Dated Thrift Store Find to Modern Seating

I never get tired of upholstery projects, and I hope you feel the same way because I have a doozy of a slipcover/upholstery makeover for you today. When you click through, you'll see that the finished project is much more minimal and modern than what you see in the photo above. It honestly looks like a brand new couch.

When I saw this makeover on Rock Paper Scissor Graphics, I think I made an audible squeal. I love it. The clean lines and neutral fabric are quite a departure from the original plush couch and floral print. Don't you think?

The general concept for this reupholstery is similar to this how-to on sewing a slip cover for a nursery glider, also from RPSG. For more photos, visit Rock Paper Scissor Graphics.

This is really an amazing exammple of furniture renovation. I am working in renovation and recycling for past many years and it is one the best examples of furniture and Mattress Renovation I have ever seen.

Fantastic, at a time when everything is recycled, I confess that this is one of the nicest recycling I've seen for a long time in the style useful
