Before & After

Remember my post about gold leafing the $50 Salvation Army chair?

Here is the before:

Unfortunately, for now, I only have a poor quality iPhone picture. I really love how it turned out!! Yes, that's TWO exclamation points :) I was so pleased my upholsterer understood my vision when I mentioned I wanted an offset stripe.

The home this chair belongs to has been shot and I will share the photographs as soon as I get them! But for now... more packing!
