From Scrap to Stylish!

Rather sad auction find...to

Stylish bathroom set!!

From scrap to stylish

This bathroom chair and laundry basket was an auction find – although tatty and dirty the proportions and lines of the items were good and in good repair. The laundry basket had a hole in the top so I decided to cover it to match the chair.

After a thorough scrubbing, a coat of paint was applied to freshen the cane, the seat totally recovered using a lovely shell print fabric with a soft sheen and a matching covering was made for the laundry basket. I finished off with dull gold studs to match the fabric and voila!

For another rags to riches project go to Hello Dolly!
