Wow!! That's an amazing transformation! Janie, seriously, you've got some real talent there.

From start to finish, how long do you think it took you, and what do you estimate for the total cost (materials only, not your time) to bring it back to life?

Thank you!! I really enjoy doing this.

Let’s see, cost of materials for this project…

Legs: $12
Fabric: $10
Foam cushions: $15
Wood trim: $2
Handles: $8

So, about $50. The paint and supplies I already had.



I’m in the process of finishing a few other pieces and will post pics soon of those.

She did pretty good for having never seen one before. Only thing that's incorrect is the collar. I'll see if I can find more (have to dig through countless pictures which I thought were organized...)

She did a good job on the uniform!! It's tailored quite nicely. Big Grin
