Before and After

Finished a chair today!
It feels SO good to get a piece done and ready to return to a customer. This one is going to the ladies at Shine.

Many of you may or may not know, but I have been reupholstering furniture for a living since 1998. I apprenticed with a woman for about 2 years and just went with it. I have done everything from outdoor cushions to museum quality restoration. Glad I picked up this skill because it has carried me through grad school and beyond. It compliments my sculpture background and diversifies my income.

So, if anyone out there ever needs something redone, and you are in the Baltimore area, you know who to call.;)
