An amazing before and after!

I have a pretty great "before and after" for you guys today. Check out this Craigslist find that my client bought:

Photobucket
the photo is tiny, but you get the drift. It was a wooden frame upholstered in an 80's-ish fabric.

She had the sofa reupholstered, and I came in and did a wash on the frame:

as you can see, it fits a lot better in the space now! (I also painted the coffee table, but it was drying outside when I took this photo)

such a pretty room!

  2. Love the sofa!! Of course my eye goes right to that cool iron scrolly thing, because it's hung upside down--and too low. If she'd flip it and hang it higher and put some plates or framed things below it that sofa would be the star
    It deserves to be. PS -I KNOW this is a picky post...

  3. This is beautiful - looks like something I saw recently in the Restoration Hardware catalog. I love when someone takes something old and worn and breathes new life into it!

  6. Wow. So I just found you through a Google image search for geometric patterns and found a post of yours in 2010! But I love a pattern on a fabric you were looking at to use on a project of mine. Anyway - you should totally link this up to Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Linky Party! It's STUNNING!!! Your newest follower. :-)

  7. Great work! Any idea who did the upholstery? I'm new to Decatur and delving into furniture makeovers. I will need a good contact for upholstery (as right now I skip over GREAT pieces cause I can't sew worth a lick!)Thanks :)

  8. Kristen is awesome!! This was my settee she did and for the anonymous commenter re: the iron thingy...it actually is not upside down. That's how it hangs! :) However, I am going to take your advice, as I think that would be great and I have plenty of plates that need a home!! So, thank you!!
