It seems difficult to reupholster something. Painting fabric is a lot easier. Not only is upholstery a skill, finding the perfect fabric can be equally difficult. Painting also has the benefit of being customizable. I had a pair of stools who's shape I love, but fabric seat I hate. My sister and I tag teamed them to try and make it better.
– Fabric seat
Here are my barstools before the makeover. The shape is great, the fabric not so much.
I recruited my sister Hope Perkins and we channeled our inner Kristy Gammill, Ashley Goldberg and Lisa Congdon. In other words we tag teamed an abstract.
I love the way the stools turned out. They were quick, easy and one of a kind. They are just what I needed to hide the bad 80's fabric on the stools until I find my "dream upholstery fabric".
Who knows maybe this custom abstract paint job is my "dream fabric".
