I’d been given a chaise longue to re-upholster and as I’d not attempted any upholstery before I decided to look for an intro to upholstery course. I found a really good one at the Good Life Centre in London, that aimed to demistify upholstery for beginners. I attended the one day course, taught by practicing upholsterer Rachael South, and she covered all the basics. It was a really fun day and this is the stool I reupholstered.
Shortly after we had moved house and we were still without broadband, I was getting a bit restless and started looking for a new project. We had been given a glass-top garden table and it was just crying out to be decorated with mosaic. Using my favourite blue tiles I created the outline for the pattern and then filled the spaces with broken white tiles, mosaic tiles and broken mirror.
