So today's post is a shout out to my lovely mother who reupholstered a settee she bought at a thrift store. The original fabric reminds me of Missoni and I actually feel like this colorway and design is making a comeback!? (ala Kelly Wearstler - but still not a fan of it!)
The original sofa had a double welt which we thought made it look more custom than just gluing on some black gimp. (Although my lazy butt probably would of just glued the black gimp and not bothered with a double welt! blegh!)
But my momma charged through and had just enough fabric for the double welt. She did this piece in about 10 hours - most time consuming was that welt!
Here is the sofa in the room. We are calling this room the "Traveler Room" or "Safari Room" - it has a well traveled feel to it and when I saw this leopard print fabric I thought it would be perfect for the room!
Sorry not so clear of a shot - just quickly snapped this this morning!
Side note: I not only inherited my craftyness from my mother but also her psychitzophrenic design style as well!! She has super old New Orleans Style rooms in her home and then extremely modern rooms - she says she doesn't care because she loves both looks and doesn't care what people think! ha! I'll have to get some pictures together for a home tour of my parents house...
