Reverse Garbage ‘Trash Amour’ Exhibition

Upcycled Furniture

Trash Amour Submission

I have these cool little bedside tables that I am re-invigorating with fabric and paint. I picked them up from Lifeline for next to nothing, they were sitting there in the dust, all sad, pining away. Now they are fabric fantastic and have friends the Coffee Can Twins. These are destined for the Reverse Garbage exhibition Trash Amour.

Trash Amour at Reverse Garbage
Opening night: Saturday February 18th 6pm – 9pm
Address: Reverse Emporium at Reverse Garbage
20 Burke St. Woolloongabba

Reupholstery – Julie’s Couch

Reupholstery is so much fun when you can turn something truly hideous into something this fantastic! A commissioned piece my client, Julie, knew she wanted to use the Gullvi (faces) fabric from Ikea, but she was worried that over the whole couch it would look too much and would turn something cool into something very not!

The solution was to use the Gullvi as the removeable and washable slip covers over the seat and back cushion while upholstering the main body and arms of the couch in a heavy-duty black upholstery fabric. The black provides a backdrop to allow the Gullvi fabric to really pop and if it ever does get too much, it won’t be a full reupholstery job, just a couple of new cushion covers. And the stripe ties the couch in to another piece of furniture in the room and provides that punctuation mark!

If you have a piece you want re-imagined, let me know at
