DIY: Mid Century Modern Makeover

created on: 07/01/08

If this modern chrome upholstered combo was mine, I know just where I'd put it.  Well, it isn't.  I did do a makeover on it for a friend and a mid century aficionado.  She used to own the most unbelieveable little store called ModPod.  Now she makes handmade, modern, clay pet urns for the cremains of beloved pets. 

This makeover has a few components which I'll cover in three parts. First will be the snap tutorial for the back pillows hanging on the frame, next will be sewing the pillows, tabs, and cording for the back pillows and last will be the boxed, no cord seat cushions with topstitching around the seams.  Below is a photo of the BEFORE.  Stay tuned for the DIY: Snap workshop.

I know this aqua vinyl looks good from a distance but it was cracking and dried in spots, it needed to be replaced.
