The other day I found a cool blog about flipping furniture.
Here’s Stephanie, the blogger.
Isn’t she pretty? And she’s funny, too!
Turns out the particular post I read
featured ReFabulous Interiors — the business of a gal that I know!
Her name is Becky, + she’s just as nice as she is pretty:
1. Becky was a 7th grade art student of mine, the last year I taught!
2. Her mom, Dawn, used to shop in my old retail store,
the late, great Heart-in-Hand in Oregon, Illinois.
3. Dawn’s an avid Atlanta Braves fan,
+ her team + mine just might meet in the postseason this year!

Oh, dear. I digress, majorly.
Shall we get back to Becky + ReFabulous Interiors?
Let’s see some of the magic she works on plain Jane furniture:
Go have a look-see at Becky’s website:

Anyway, all these groovy projects had me feeling nostalgic
about all the chairs that I used to flip!
Here’s the chair that started my chair flipping “career”:
Actually, this was one of a set of 4 dark green, metal folding chairs
that I found in an antiques shop in my hometown.
Those 4 chairs turned into my first numbered series —
+ our (meaning: G.O.’s) first attempt at upholstering with my stenciled fabric!
He’s actually very talented at upholstery!

Here are some of our other upholstered chair flips:
Now we’ve left France + are headed into Industrial Land:
I am such a fan of slipcovering old chairs.
Here are some of my favorite flips, featuring slips!
Well, that was fun!
I still have some chairs in storage,
awaiting their makeovers, including one just like this:
Thanks for viewing all my projects-from-the-past,
+ stay tuned to see if I’ve been inspired
to get back to chair flipping!
