Here are two small projects, both of which were for the same client. One is a simple upholstered headboard, and the other is a 3 panel room divider.
Before. This was covered in some kind of greenish gold burlap, with gold tacks oddly spaced around the edges (so they wouldn't hit each other). I didn't take proper "before" photos, so these are what I have.
Since light passes through burlap too easily, the inside was lined with old newspapers.
