Colonel Mustard

So FOREVER ago, I posted a bit about Colonel Mustard, my $5 Goodwill find.  He has been made over.  My intent was to do it myself.  My husband calmly and kindly convinced me to hire Miss Ginger to do it for $60.00.  He is a smart man.  Once I had gutted the Col.  I realized that putting him back together was going to be much more than I had anticipated.  $60.00 was a small price to pay.  I love the result....the professional-looking result.

I was worried about the tufting on the chevron, but it looks great.

Oh honey.... my goodness, The Colonel Mustard is so handsome now with his chevron suit on.

If your Miss Ginger work for only $60 dolla-no-holla, I could afford to fly her here to do a few pieces for me.

Looks really good. Love the mix up of the modern pattern with the old looking style of the chair.
