This little side chair was one of our most recent re-upholstery projects for a client. The chair was in excellent condition, so we didn’t have to replace the foam. We did add a bit of cotton batting though. Our client chose a gorgeous fabric from our line of Carole fabrics. She wanted a bit of contrast, so we added a pretty blue double cording around the edges.
Our labor charges to upholster a chair like this start at $95. Our turnaround time is usually about three weeks.
Alchemy fine living is a creative business. My mom and I offer furniture painting services, simple upholstery, and custom slipcovers.
We have been painting furniture for clients for over a decade now. The two of us have been sewing our whole lives. We've sewn things like prom dresses and bathing suits, but back in 2008 we decided to focus our seamstress abilities on home decorative items; specifically custom made slipcovers.
I'm Deana, the author of this blog. My mom, Connie, taught me from a young age how to spot a deal at a flea market or a thrift shop. She could always spot the hidden potential of an old, worn out piece of furniture. I learned to sew when I was four years old and all through the years I helped my mom with DIY projects around the house.
In 2008 she & I turned our hobby into a business. We offer furniture painting, upholstery, and sewing services.
