Custom made cushions can set the tone, and add a pop of color, to any additional seating in the home or commercial venue....whether for a window seat, mud room or entry way.  This seven foot cushion is with JKB's "True Blue" Canvas fabric for durability with contrasting Canvas White Trim.

This hand-me-down sofa had good bones but didn't fit into the Client's newly remodeled home.  The new deep blue fabric, selected by the client, pulls together the gray tones in the living room.

What happened to get this recliner to match the client's other furniture that is going to the new lake home?  Let's see....we removed the skirt, modified the bottom frame to allow the side fabric to wrap under (since the skirt was removed), removed the bottom cording and modernized the front arm panels.  When this recliner was delivered, the client said "it feels like Mom is hugging me again".  If you are like the fabric...it's Duralee # DW61175 Color 197 Marine. 

Recovering dining room chair seats is an easy, quick way to update those drab chairs.  Selecting a durable fabric, like this Crypton Sprout Champagne - 1008207, is a great solution.  Pretty...yet tough like steel.

Molded plastic chairs can be reupholstered like traditional furniture.  These 1976 chairs were transformed with the Duralee - DW15931 #141 Jewel fabric.  The cracks and chips on the legs were also repaired and refinished with Shaker Maple stain.  

Our talented team has the skills giving us the capability to expand our services to include outdoor swing awnings.  What was once a wind-torn mangled mess, is now a heavy-duty Sunbrella fabric which will last many Mid-western wind storms to come. The Sunbrella Fabric is from our JKB Supplier -- Heritage Wheat S18008.  Click on the Upholstery Fabrics tab above to find this, and 1,000's more fabrics.

Merging old with the new is what the Client wanted to do with this antique chair.  The geometric patterned material fits the bill.

Multiple benches, stools and chairs come to our workshop to have the seats recovered.  The old vinyl has holes and tears due to poor quality foam and not wrapped with a protective material, or the fabric is beyond cleaning.  

After a whole house remodel, the clients updated this traditional chair with fun fabric complementing their new decor.

Our young clients had the vision to turn this 30+ year old sofa into a modern piece of furniture for their new home.  We replaced the gusset corners on the pillows and cushion with the boxed style. The skirt was removed and the legs were refinished with new mahogany stain.

The table now has a golden oak finish which is a dramatic change from the previous stain saturated grain. The client is happy to have her father’s auction treasure back at home.

Who remembers all the gold interior fabrics from the 70's? These dining room chairs are now updated to the 21st century. Oh yeah...check it out....all of the new seats are identical!!

This oak dining table supported many meals for a client's growing family but it was time to give it a new facelift. We removed the water and heat marks from the table top, gave the entire item a rich uniform color and many coats of protection to withstand many more years of family gatherings.

With thirty buttons, newly finished legs, and an invisible diamond stitched pattern, this former 50's tufted chair now has a new modern look.

Can you believe it? This dresser was on its way to the thrift store!! Though it didn't have a mirror and was as wobbly as a newborn colt, it was calling out for a new life. It was time to flip.  With a lot of carpenter's glue, clamps, nails, sanding and a special finish (to repel water and those other bathroom messes), this dresser turned into a one-of-kind gem. It provides great form and function for the newly remodeled bathroom.​

The below  antique rocker was especially interesting to upholster since it was built by Kansas City’s own Helmer’s Manufacturing Company. Helmer’s once operated at the foot of the 4th Street Viaduct in the West Bottoms of Kansas City. That area is now jumping with bargain shoppers during KC’s monthly First Fridays. According to our research, this company closed in the 1920’s. That puts this antique rocker to be at least 87 years old. The Client discovered this neglected treasure in a basement of an old brick building and saw the potential of reviving it back to its former glory.  The Client is now enjoying her time rocking with her grandchildren.
