Employee of the Month

Here at BRASWELL’S we always thought that Jack was “just” a cat, a cat we rescued and a cat we love dearly. No one was aware of Jack’s amazing ability to make people feel welcomed in the shop; soon they were at home with all of Braswell’s mix of eclectic things. Below are some notable office chores that Jack has managed to master.

Jack is the employee of the month!

A Couch fit for Don Draper

I love the show MAD MEN! Have you noticed? Don "drapes" himself on couches?

Here is a couch for you Don Draper!

If you buy a well made couch you will have it for years, making a few changes-reupholster-change the arms-slipcovers-that is certainly a Green solution, and one that will safe you time and $$.

I could not find a stripe that I liked, so I made one from the blue and brown strip you see on the pillows; another great fabric for a perfect stripe could be men’s suiting fabric. I got some material (of the same weight) this happens to be linen and viola…here is the MAD MEN Sofa.

*TIP-Make sure you match the stripes-on the cushions with below stripe and stripe over the tight back of your sofa.
