This is, obviously, the before shot of the chair. It is quite old and, I swear, the seat cushion (not pictured) weighs 20 pounds. I can't figure out what's inside to make it so heavy!
If you look very closely, you can see how much the sun has faded the chair. It is much darker on the deck and as far up the inside arms as the cushion sits.
These pictures were VERY hard to take, as this room is on the 3rd floor and it was quite sunny. I couldn't get the flash to work because it was so bright. Anyway, I apologize for the quality, or lack thereof, of the photographs.
Taken from outside on the balcony.
My client made this small throw pillow to tie in with the window seat (not visible) cushion.
My signature button-back.

This home is being photographed today (Thursday, 10 September) for Better Homes & Gardens magazine. That's why I was in such a rush to get them done. My clients were running around, trying to get everything ready for the stylist, who was on her way yesterday and for the photographer today. I am hopeful it won't be an entire year before this issue comes out. I'll let you know.

Better Homes and Gardens is one of my fave mags though we have our own Aussie version so, unfortunately for me, I'll miss out on the one you will be featured in. Btw, AWESOME job!

Btw, there should be a flash setting somewhere in the tools sections of your camera where you can have the flash stay on regardless of light conditions.
