A nice girl named Ali asked me where I got the chair Bev is sitting on in this picture:
I bought it a few years ago at an antique store (which is now closed) in my neighborhood. At the time, the seat was a really ugly yellow vinyl so I recovered it all by myself using some gray velvet I bought at a fabric store. It was so easy to do... I simply put the velvet right over the old vinyl and secured it using a staple gun and staples. I also used the same technique to recover an antique lucite bench I had with an ugly turquoise vinyl cushion.
I didn't take official before pictures of the two pieces, but found them in the background of some other pics. Here's the chair before and after:
And here's the bench:
My recovering job is by no means professional, but it looks pretty good, right?
