I loved the shape of it and the channel back but that back scared me. I had no clue how to recover that. Oh, and I googled it believe me, I. google. everything. How much is that silver dish worth? Google. Need a recipe for red snapper? Google. Funny rash on your arm? well you get the picture.
So, I released the need to do it myself and I compromised. I would redo the frame and have someone else reupholster it. There are times you must admit it is beyond your skill level. Or require more time that you can give to it. You see, I didn't get around to deciding this until just months before we were to move to FL. Hubby was already living there and I was the one left to get the house on the market. And I was a fanatic when it came to getting everything just so. It was probably good we weren't living together at the time because we might not be married now. He would come home on most weekends to help but I was the one on hands and knees cleaning baseboards, filling trim with caulk, fixing holes in drywall and cleaning, painting, and more painting. I didn't sleep much but the house sold in a week. Yeah buddy, a week.
I don't have any during photos since this was before the wonderful world of bloggingThe fabric I got at Fabric and Fringe. Gosh I miss that store. Isles and isles of fabric. It was heaven. The table is in line for some paint. Probably in the cream. I need to find new knobs. There is a drawer on the other side with a mismatched one. I found the little pillow at Target the other day. Loved the colors. Need to work on some other pillows for the couch. And by "work on" I mean sew out of the fabric I have stashed. Or.... maybe I'll just buy some.
took over entered my life. But I first removed every one of those darn nail heads so that I could get to the frame better. I then sanded the frame and painted it a creamy white. I then took some burnt umber and watered it down and brushed on and wiped off. I really just aimed it at all the engraved swirly parts. I fiddled with it a bit to get it where I wanted.
