Before and Afters

Some custom work I've done recently.

For some reason, I did not get a picture of this bed before, so this is just the after.
Before, it was just a plain mattress, no bedding.



Before, a vanity stool that will be in the same room as the first bed.

After, it now coordinates with the bedding.


After, some pillows on the chair to raise the baby up to table height and a nice starched white table cloth for the table.


After, painted to compliment the room's decor.

After, I made pillows also, but, didn't get a shot of them on the settee.

  1. Dale, you are now officially a clothier for furnishings :), a haute clothier! Fabulous job of undressing and dressing.I have always had problems handling cloth.

    Didn't you just die when the beds were sent to you? They are lovely! Bespaq or Hansson?

  2. Sans! You are too funny, I might have to put that in my job description. ;)

    I just really like textiles. And, they seem to like me, so it's working out pretty good. lol

    The first bed is a handmade artisan creation, signed on the back, but I can't remember the name now. Super fragile!

    I believe the other bed was bespag, like the settees.

  3. They are lovely transformations, you are really talented. I look forward to seeing them in situ.

  4. Just popping in to say hello and that i love the befores and afters:O)
