A couple of furniture items have been given a makeover over the Xmas, New Year break and are now for sale in Goods and Chattels, Market Place, Howden.
This stunning Boudoir Chair is in blue and white toile with blue vintage braid trim
Busy day in the workshop.
These beech drop in seat chairs have been given a new lease of life with a funky vintage vinyl print. With a wipe clean surface, they are perfect for the kitchen, Bathroom or nursery.
This Lloyd Loom type blanket box was mercifully in its original state, so a quick clean and recovering with a vintage floral print “Countryside” has brought it right up to date.. Just needs a complimentary braid to finish.
Next stop spotty chairs.
Call back soon!
