Well hello there! I feel like we have so much to catch up on. It's been a hectic couple of weeks, but with the Fall semester over, my last client project of 2014 complete, I'm back!
Today I MUST share with you one of my recent furniture transformations. I've been known to take a furniture with good bones and give it a new life through reupholstery and a fresh perspective, but I'm often doing that for my client's homes. Well this time, it was all about me.
My good friend Jennifer sent me a text about a year ago with this photo attached.
She was out shopping at her neighborhood Goodwill and noticed that this piece looked a lot like my sofa. I immediately inquired about the price. When she responded with $14.99, I couldn't type "GET IT!" quick enough.
I'll be honest, it sat in my garage for nearly a year, before I finally found the right place for it and the perfect fabric. Sometimes these things take a while. Patience is key. It wasn't until the night Baity's Custom Upholstery came to pick it (and another chair) up that I got really excited about the transformation.
I selected a velvet and cotton cheetah print. Yes, a bit of a departure for me but I felt like my living room needed a little fun.
I decided to up the prep factor with a contrasting welt in a rich gold I used previously on a throw pillow. I almost flipped when I got this progress picture from the upholsterer.
This was going to be good.
I was right! I'm obsessed with this chair. It is exactly what the space needed.
I was obsessed with the bones from the jump. I'm sure it had something to do with the fact that I'm a sucker for a Chippendale leg. The fabric is just to DIE for and add to that the contrast piping and I think I 've died and gone to chair heaven.
Oh, did I mentioned it's comfortable too?
I LOVE THIS CHAIR! So, what do you think? Would you have scooped up this deal or just passed it by without giving it a second look?
