Our JB Upholstery Project Before and After!

This fab chair, covered in British Rail Transit fabric, is coming to the Junk Bonanza Minneapolis as part of the upholstery tips demonstrations we’re holding daily for attendees!JBchair4

This chair, and its mate, looked a bit more modest when they were spotted for us by one of our favorite Bonanza scouts in Minneapolis! Quite the buy at $10 each!

Love those solid wood arms and chrome legs! Lots of vintage va-va-voom!

While the heavy duty upholstery was not in bad shape, it was ready for a refresh!

Enter Cynthia Bleskachek of Blue Sky Galleries, our upholstery class teacher! We used this great new fabric based on authentic British transit route sign graphics from Bonanza vendor DeWayne Lumpkin Design Studio (he’ll be selling yardage at the Portland show!).  Cynthia carefully parsed out this puzzle so the maximum amount of words would show!

She’ll fix up the “Before” chair post-Bonanza!

The classes are free! On Thursday and Saturday sessions you can register to win an upholstery book and tool.
