Make It Tuft: Tufted Furniture with a Masculine Flair (But still Feminine for me)

Milla again. I’ve been inspired lately, whoo. But I’ll let you all in on a little secret. Kah has refused to post something until she feels that I have caught up to her post total. Sad face.

I admitted to not posting as much, yet I participated in all the DIY. Go me! Either way we both suck. We deserted this site for over a year.

Anyway, I saw a post online for tufted a couch. And it’s free. Now I love anything free and tufted and I’m hoping to receive an email that the couch is still available. So I showed the couch to my electronics-loving, overly masculine husband to be and needless to say he was not overly impressed.

Not impressed

He was immediately like, “Where is that supposed to go?” The living room of course. He frowned. I had to keep screaming but it’s FREE before he said I could inquire about it. Yay!

Then I immediately began researching ways we could make a tufted couch look not so feminine, especially vintage couches.

I know when we think manly, we immediately think leather. Lots of leather.

However, Breeze will not allow us to own a leather couch and besides those are too dark for me. Where are the colors?

I would love to own any of these but I think  I’ll have an easier time of convincing him to go with a gray tufted sofa than anything. It’s warm, hides stains, and I can still match it with turquoise. Wish me luck guys.  XOXO
