A splash of color is perfect to lighten or brighten the mood of your sleeping space that is so important. Whichever color you chose has to be one that reflects who you are. Before doing anything, check the hidden meaning behind colors as, after all, they affect the way you sleep and wake.

Reupholstered Steelcase Chair



The 70s was a very cool and trendy era but as for some of the home and furniture styling, not everything was as spectacular as headbands once were back then. This chair can be perfectly used as a desk chair bringing a little more love and comfort to your work or as a chair the family can enjoy sitting around in the living altogether. Naturally, as with everything, choose a fabric that suits your interior design the most. The metal could be a little rusty from humidity so apply a generous amount of anti-rust formula clearing out any imperfections.

Dining Chair Do-Over



If we are honest, eating is one of the most important parts of dinner and life in general. It’s a time where the family can meet all together and talk about how the day went from past anecdotes. So naturally, the way you are comfortable at the table makes all the difference. It is important that this brings you comfort and fits within the style of your home. It is a great way to make changes to any room simply by looking after the covers and foam of the seats. Give your bottom a treat and give yourself the importance of being around the diner table.

Re-upholstered Swivel Armchair



We can all benefit from our grandparent’s furniture when they believe we require the most, say we moved into a new house or apartment and we wish to take a little history with us. But history doesn’t always mean that we must take the 50s into our homes where we wanted a reasonable contemporary look and feel. Velvet is lovely but perhaps in someone else’s home. In yours not so much. This is a great way to keep memories in an environment that will make you feel comfortable and match your character. Embrace the new life of your without a doubt love for this armchair.

Re-upholstered Couch



It’s always a nice thing to renew the environment of your home and living spaces but at times this means and involves a lot of money. And it also means getting rid of a perfectly great frame in the first place. So what not give your once beloved cough a new life? And in the process of it all, the proudness of having done it yourself? Nothing is more pleasing than sitting on the sofa, doing the things you love to do best whatever they may be. Use fabric that best suits your personality and indoor environment. Take it as a white wall where creativity has no obstacles.
