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

Decoupaged Comic Chair

OOOH, this one was so much fun! It is decoupaged with comic books and painted with a thick varnish. The previously orange-with-age timber is now a resplendent honey colour. It was a commission for a friend and now takes pride of place in his bedroom.
