Upcycling Furniture with Vintage Fabric and Wallpaper

As anyone familiar with my blog knows my passion is vintage fabric.  However, on my travels I see lots of tired and worn out furniture begging for a new lease of life.  As a qualified City and Guilds Upholsterer I have the skills to refurbish these items and here are a few items that I have recently brought home to my workshop.

Original unpainted Lloyd Loom storage box

Tired and faded Bedside cabinet

Call back in a couple of days and see the transformation

Vintage Barkcloth Fabrics

Just in these fabulous barkcloths ready for the autumn Vintage fairs.  Perfect for cushions, bags, skirts etc.  This colourful skirt was made from an old pair of vintage curtains and has a plain pink bias trim

New vintage fabrics

A great weekend of fabric hunting has thrown up these fantastic prints which have now been listed on my website http://www.sagodesign.co.uk
Free postage is standard to Uk and European buyers and until the end of June there is a free gift of a vintage fabric needle case and pin cushion.
