I’d like to introduce you to Ange, who runs Chair Up on the Gold Coast.  Ange reupholsters chairs and paints furniture for her clients.  I always enjoy seeing what projects she’s up to but her last couple of transformations were so incredible that I wanted to share them with you.

How lovely is this French armchair and chest of drawers?  Whilst they are both gorgeous, it’s not until you see the before photos that you realise just what a transformation they have been through.  Are you ready for the before photos?

Furniture Makeover Chair UpCan you believe it’s the same chair?  Ange has completely reupholstered the chair in French grain sack style pure linen, painted the chair frame white, added dark tufted buttons and used hemp trim and upholstery studs on the back of the chair.

Furniture Makeovers Chair UpThe transformation of these drawers is incredible.  Ange has managed to turn a modern laminate piece of furniture into vintage looking catalogue drawers.  The transformation involved painting the drawers, adding grooves to the drawer fronts with a router, replacing the feet with castors, and adding the bookplate drawer pulls.
