As some of you know, I recently recovered and painted an antique couch. To see that couch click here.The funny thing is, I had been sort of looking for one for me. I just found one and this post is about its transformation. This is my first step in making over my living room. It is in need of major help. I need to just take it one step at a time and I know it will get there...but I want it done now! Anyone else ever feel that way?
Here is the couch. A craigslist find.
Love the feet.
Such lovely lines.
After taking all the fabric and batting off, I found the burlap needed replacing. I used some outdated fabric I had.
I painted the wood gold after a sanding and good cleaning.
I went shopping looking for fabric, but I couldn't get myself to pay that much so I used a drop cloth again. Here is the couch mid process. Still tweaking to get more wrinkles out.
Here is the finished couch.
I am still playing around with the layout of the living room. As I make progress I will definitely share.
I feel like I am on the right track now. I just need spring to arrive so I can hit the garage sales and find some treasures to complete the space.
