Don’t ya just love a good transformation. I have recently found the joy of transformation in the form of sad little chairs that are just begging for a new lease on life!

The featured chair belongs to a dear friend who was brave enough to sacrifice her little chair to a novice (hack) who had never attempted a serious re-upholstery project! Thank you April!

Using the information gleaned from the Kravet upholstery road show and many hours spent on youtube.com I managed to give this little gem a much needed face lift and booty lift too!

April cringed at my choice of coverings, but the orange seemed to be the perfect choice to perk up this charming piece of craftsmanship! The carved back is stunning, and the channeled upholstery on the back just adds to the details that make this chair so special.

My first transformation still needs a name! Any ideas out there? If you happen to live in Austin you can go by and visit her where she is proudly displayed at Salon Kerizma awaiting her next photo shoot!
