Befores and Afters
I’m thrilled to bits that the chairs I’ve had covered in Sevilla Rock are featured on Design*Sponge’s Befores and Afters today!

This one was a gift for Peter Slingsby, who let me use his records of Cederberg rock art. Thanks Pete!

This glider was a rather lucky find in a very cottagey furniture store.

And this is one of those Befores that are so bad, the After can’t help but be an improvement!

To buy yardage of my Sevilla Rock upholstery-weight fabrics, visit my Etsy shop.

  3. Awesome finds. The fabric works perfectly in all three types of chairs too. What a great way to show the diversity of your upholstery fabrics.

  5. The before and afters are incredible! I left a post on Design*Sponge saying your fabrics are even more gorgeous in person- which they are!

    My sister adores the fabric I bought her and has made the cutest toys with them- I’ll have to take some photos for you.
