Hello lovely visitors! Sorry for the delay. I meant to update two Fridays ago, but our birthday was the 21st. We are now 27 years old but look younger then most teenagers and often hear, “Ya’ll twins are so cute!” on a daily basis. Then we suddenly started having internet connection issues. Comcast you are worthless. And even our mobile internet wouldn’t connect! Curse you Sprint.
So…we have a recent purchase to showcase. A wonderful Craigslist find of course. It is a button-tufted wingback settee/loveseat. We purchased this item for $75. It’s very Vintage. Very worn. In need of a makeover.
Disclaimer: Please excuse the baseboard molding-less walls, we have to yet to reinstall that. Oh and any other miscellaneous items pictured as well.
And we are leaning towards a luscious velvety fabric to reupholster this in. I know what you all are thinking. Velvet! But what about Breeze The Upholstered Furniture Destroyer (another story for another post).
Well, we’ve been reading a lot about cats and velvet and it seems that they are uninterested in that fabric. It lacks the loops and stitching for them to claw into. Breeze just prefers to sleep on anything velvet so if I only have to worry about pet hair…I am overjoyed.
So I began researching for color inspiration. Of course we’re immediately drawn to anything turquoise and World Market is currently selling this beauty for $349
And Sofa.com offers customized sofa styles, everything from sectionals to chesterfield sofas in an array of fabrics and colors. However, these two configurations below cost over $2,000.
Or the extremely regal purple velvet. Breeze would look amazing if photographed on this.
Either way, until the makeover project begins…Breeze is on furniture timeout.
