Brace yourself, I've got lots of before & afters coming at you....
Funky, right? This chair was sponsored by a really eclectic store that sells unique home furnishings and other oddities collected from across Canada & Europe...I guess that inspires antlers? And sweater-chairs?
Beautiful butterflies! There are two of these beauties, refinished by a colleague of mine, and they're stunners.
These farm stools are pretty awesome - they even spin! I made it so that the 'stamp' can be customized for whoever wins these. They can choose their own letters/numbers to personalize it.
Faux fur throw and Hudson Bay inspired print on the pillow - this chair is sponsored by the New Canadians Centre, obviously!
Not really much to look at when it's 'full frontal' (in buff beige, no less!), but a peek of colour on the back. Surprise! Not so boring after all.
And I can't remember if I shared this "suit-able" chair before...it's covered in a wool suit fabric salvaged from a charity shop in town.
All the chairs are rescues and salvages, most from my trolling on Kijiji (good times!), and then lovingly refurbished. They're auctioned off to support the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign - auction is Saturday night.
