Antique Sofa

So I have had my eye on this sofa for a while now.  A good friend of mine used it in her basement, it had beautiful lines, and so much character!   I was secretly plotting to at least reupholster if not steel it from her. But a little while ago I got a message on Face Book from her asking me if I would like to have it!!!!

It has been sitting in storage for almost a year now, and I finally have some time to refurbish it.  I am going to have all the fabric black, and the wood trim grey.  All my pillows will be bright and inviting! 

Do you see the potential? 
There are 8 feet all beautifully carved along with the beautiful wood trim. 
My first thought was to reupholster it in a yellow fabric with white trim, but  I had to real myself in and realize that I have two lovely children and more to come...so if I want to enjoy the sofa it would have to be black. 

Ill be posting pictures after I am finished! 



  1. wow, it will be beautiful! i wish i knew how to reupholster!!

  2. you lucky duck! That sofa is beautiful! I am sure it will be amazing!

  3. YAY! I can't wait to see how it comes out!
