Came home from work on Monday night to discover a whole new lounge room in my house!!
A lovely young man has recovered our very servicable, yet tired, cat-scratched, plastic-y feeling couch into a soft, tactile, flecked-yet-solid, teal yes teal couch. I know the modern asthetic is for cream, beige, taupe, brown or black furniture - but I yawn at the thought! I want COLOUR and lots of it!
(Shot has not been altered in any way - yes washing (albeit clean) is piled up and a cup left out - please avert your eyes- you looked didn't you!)
I still wake up and go straight (well almost straight) to the lounge room to have another look.
I have Anna-Maria-ed the lounge room. I have always loved her sense of colour and mixing, not necessarily matching, sometimes clashing, just mouthwatering and surprising combos and designs.
The two cushion covers I made (with some op-shopped zippers) and a little bit of 'cross-your-fingers and hope-to-hell-it-works-cos-I-dont'-have-anymore-of-this-fabric' (Stacked Books from Drawing Room range)
95% sure of construction - didn't succeed terribly well with the whole zipper flap business, but with a bit of a plump and fluff, they are fairly hidden. They may need reducing down just a smidgen - you know those pesky corners that bunch and wrinkle - yep, got 8 of those.
Some chairs bought off ebay were also recovered in a not too dark navy - almost a deep denim. I have some great fabric for cushions for these too.
Loving my couch with my AMH 'Folks love Squares' quilt - they go together like they were born for each other.
Ooh - I also have an inherited rocker being recovered too - in, guess what, more AMH!
