Practice piece in Black and White

I had a bit of a disappointment a couple of weeks ago. I had gone to my local upholsters and asked if I could volunteer my time in return to teach me a few things. Both said no. I'm not upset with them in anyway, just was hoping to learn a little faster then I am. (sigh)

A while back I bought this fainting couch at my local thrift store. This was layer one.

This was layer two

And number three

Black and white seems to be my theme this week, so here it is.

I used my mixed up design and reupholstered it and painted the legs black.

So the question is am I happy with it?.... The answer is, I'm ok with it. Since I'm learning how to do this on my own, from books and videos, it is what it is. And thats ok with me. Each little practice piece along the way, I'm hoping for better results, until one day I will be decent upholster and feel confident enough to sell something I do.
                                       Until then, I just lounge around on this one.:)
