One of my designer clients was hired to design this building for a co-op store, which includes JMR, a hair studio, and a gallery. It's called the "Chalk Garden Co-op" in downtown Salt Lake City. He picked up 3 wing backs and a settee from a consignment store for me to slipcover in drop cloths.
I didn't get before pics of the wing backs....I was dealing with a time issue- I only put so much $ in the parking meter out front. I was lucky enough to find a double spot to fit my car and trailer. The wing backs were peach velvet and gray velvet.
Here is one of the wingbacks AFTER with french welting (piping without the cording and kiss pleats on the corners). Forgive the wrinkles...I transport in bags, so it takes a few days for the wrinkles to fall out.
This store opened yesterday. All these pics were from about a week ago, when they were still in crunch time trying to finish all the construction details! I'll have to stop back in and see the finished product.
AFTER---wingbacks were all pushed to the side for the construction men to do their work.
Settee--AFTER--kiss pleat on the front corner before I dropped the pleated skirt.
Check out those stairs at the far end of the pic!
Even french welting joining the inside arm to the inside wing....just kind of finishes it off.
Here are some more props for the store.
SIDE NOTE #1
Last week we headed to Idaho to raft the Payette River with my sisters in laws---who are rafting junkies! Her husband just opened a rafting store in SLC, UT with his brother.
Anyhow half way to Idaho, Heber wakes me up to tell me he forgot to throw our sleeping bags in the car (we were gonna camp out for 3 nights). So my mind started working trying to figure out if we knew anyone in Idaho that we could borrow sleeping bags from, so we didn't have to buy new ones.
I remembered Amy lived in Idaho. She bought my Slipcover DVD about a year and a half ago and has started her own business, we talk from time to time and Facebook each other. So I called her up, and she was nice enough to borrow us some sleeping bags! So we finally got to meet in person!
The following are all pics from rafting the Payette River!
