Can you be in love with a piece of furniture? I have some new vintage couch reupholstery…I found this small settee at a thrift store waaaay back in November. $75! And it had such a great shape, I couldn’t pass it up !My Mom was nice enough to store it for me (thanks Mom! ) until I could save up enough money to have it reupholstered (thank goodness I have a wonderful friend like this who has her own sewing and upholstery business.)
It was a great deal but the blue fabric didn’t go with anything I had and it was really stained from wear and tear (At least there were no odd smells ;). The upholsterer guessed it had last been done in the late 60’s. Plus, since I wasn’t really sure where it came from. I wanted new foam in the cushions and a total strip down.
But some new fabric….
And it’s like new and I am iiin loooove…
How can you not love a piece like this?
And then I saw this piece in the Arhaus furniture catalog on sale for $1999!!!! Holy cow! If we bought that we wouldn’t eat for a month!!!
It didn’t even cost a 1/3 of that for me to cover it! How crazy is this?! I guess it just shows there is hidden potential in everything once you look past the exterior, especially with vintage pieces that have good bones.
