Before picture with a sample of the fabric:
The black geometrically lines of this fabic are a velvet so the color really pops against the white cotton fabric. Imagine the wood of these chairs painted in black with this fabric----SPECTACULAR. They would look great flanking a buffet in a dining room or a foyer table or even stunning in a office. The fabric is called Black Jack and is from Greenhouse Fabrics. I am a retailer for Greenhouse Fabrics and will be selling their fabrics on my website.
I will not have all of their fabrics online but can sell any of the them on thier website. You can view all of their fabrics at greenhousefabrics.com.
I am also a retailer for Duralee Fabrics and will have a variety of them on shm-designs.com but can sell any found on thier website: duralee.com. Duralee also carries a furniture line which SHM Designs will sell.
I would love to hear your thought on the chairs. I should have after pictures of the cane chair makeover this week as well as some update pictures on the Harrisburg house. Talk to you soon.

Have I told you lately how much I just love Craigslist.
Take a look at my newest makeover:
Aren't they just MAGNIFICENT!!! They look incredible in this dining room. I will show you more pictures once the room is done. Thanks a bunch to my upholsterer, Susan. She did a great job.

Here we go:
A Rough Carpenter is one who does framing, roofing, and other structural or other large-scale work that need not be finely joined or polished in appearance.
A Finish Carpenter is one who does cabinetry, furniture making, fine woodworking, model building, instrument making, parquetry, joinery, or other carpentry where exact joints and minimal margins of error are important.
SHM Designs has been lucky enough to find a incredible finish carpenter for all of our jobs; Mark Strouble. I have talked about him in previous posts but he continues to just amaze me. I have alot of pictures to show you, but here are a few custom builds he just finished for a client of mine.

A few weeks ago I posted on a couch that I found on Craigslist for a client. Superficially, it was in horrible condition. I told my client that since the frame was still very solid, with a little imagination and some work, it could be stunning. A definite show stopper!
I am so excited to reveal the before and after pictures for you today. The upholsterer did an incredible job and just really transformed this piece that was well on its way to the dump.
Here are a few reminder pictures of how it looked before:
