Garage Sale Score!

I don't have a "Before" picture on this sucker, but imagine green velvet.  With a bunch of gun smooshed into it.  The good thing about disgusting fabric is cheap ass prices!  I picked this guy up at an estate sale for $5! 

Restained, reupholstered and re homed!

Back In The Swing of Things

I have been an absentee blogger as of late, but I have a lot of upcoming projects that I hope to share with you!
My upholstery jobs are picking up and have kept me busy almost every single night from the time I get off work, until the time I go to bed!  I love it! In the next year or so I hope to have gained enough upholstery knowledge to strike it out on my own.

The lady who is teaching me upholstery - Val- has informed me that she hopes to retire from the University of Saskatchewan (where she is the master upholsterer) by the end of April.  At that point the university will be shutting down that position, but will still need someone to do work for them.  She has said that she will be asking for the contract, and if she does, she will be passing on to me!  I am very fortunate to have met Val! 

Life is good <3
