Just before Christmas and just before Old Man Winter put a stranglehold on the Midwest, my friend Jana and I made a shopping trip to the West Bottoms. I wasn't looking for anything in particular and that's usually when I make the best finds. I found this little treasure in the first store we popped in to.
I knew it was a complete redo because I could tell it had gotten wet and the foam on the back was disintegrating. It is a great size though at only 60" wide and about 2 1/2 feet deep and was priced at $84.50. The frame doesn't have any wiggle at all so I knew it had great bones. I had several images saved as inspiration for future projects.
I don't have a source for this one. Anyone have it?
I love the straight lines and vibrant colors of all these sofas. Mine is headed into my lounge where the walls are painted Benjamin Moore's Graphite. I thought a great vintage velvet would look great on it so I ordered up this.
It will take me a couple of weeks to whip it in to shape, but here are a few progress shots.
I take tons of progress shots throughout the process, because no matter how many times I think I'll remember exactly how it goes back together, I never do so they serve as my trail of bread crumbs!
This is always about the time I wonder what ever possessed me to take on a project like this…
So this is where we stand right now. Another few hours of tearing it down and then I'll spend a bit of time cleaning up and staining the frame before I begin putting it all back together. I can't wait until it can come home!
