A fabulous little project to get the ball rolling...


I am very lucky that after my "day" job, I can come home and work on projects that really make me happy and fulfill my hopes and dreams. I have just started to take on small jobs and this one is for a lovely client who has entrusted me to give this old antique chair a facelift.

This beautifying treatment will include some beautiful fresh white paint and we have decided on the Rubie Green East Village fabric in pink. I can't wait to show you the result. We will also be using this same gorgeous fabric for some cushions and lamp shades for their guest bedroom. Kellie xx
