The transformation continues...

Remember this monster? I found it at a local thrift for $20. In an effort to make it pretty, I took, what turned out to be, a traumatic trip to Fabric Depot.

But it was all worth it...look at it now! Beth totally re-invented it!

Here are some more shots of Chez Pre-Fab for your viewing pleasure. A ginormous and thematic flash card in a frame....


The French Blue hutch, decked out with nautical treasures...


The original clock that hung in the Portland branch office of the FBI.

More to come ladies...stay tuned!

Just love the transformation! The fabric has such a lovely pattern, well worth the trauma of buying it..

Beautiful job! Are the fabric cushions reversible? The FBI clock is cool cuz its tells you both regular & military time without having to count on your fingers (like I do!)

Oh Pam...my kids (and John and I!!) loved the clock. The noise it makes is sooooothing. We called the pillows on the couch "The Doritos". We ALL took pictures of the blue hutch without knowing the other person was shooting away. (Where do they get that?) Your beach home is SO delightful!

I'm not allowed in Fabric Depot or any other fabric store due to the fact that I flunked Sewing in junior high . . . I was an FBI stenographer at the field office in Birmingham, AL and I remember a similar clock--wonder if it was standard FBI issue?
