Details
We are looking for someone to revamp a king size bed that has a padded headboard & footboard. It either needs reupholstered or loose fitted covers created that slide over.

Option #1
Reupholster a king bed head, footboard & side panels
OR
Option #2.
Create loose fitted covers to go over the bedhead, footboard & side panels.

Fabric will be provided. You will need to come to a location in Mosman to do this job. It would be a full days job I'd imagine.

Hi Jess selection of images attached. You'll see that my much loved but now passed away cat used to consider the bed a rather large & expensive scratching post! Look forward to communicating further tomorrow/Wed

Hi Jess

i don't because I was waiting to see from an expert such as yourself what kind of fabric (thickness etc) is most suitable & quantity I need to purchase. I just want a plain fabric , no pattern. Could you come & measure up, or if I measure & send dimensions to you, can you work out quantity?

What would be the timing of the job?
Anne
Hi Anne, Yes dimensions would be fine. How much to buy depends on the width of the fabric too. If you give the dimensions, shop people generally can help. I guess you will need headboard 3-4 meter, footboard 2-3 meters, sides 1-1.5meters. So total 6-8 meters for normal width fabric.

OK. Would you like to bid n the project & give me timings too please.
Hi Anne, are they flat surface boards or they are patterned boards similar to the photo? If flat, cover will work. I can make them, and they can be laundered too later. Any chance of a photo? Thanks. Jess.
