Take a seat

Well, I have been a busy bee this week preparing for my daughter's birthday party this weekend. I will save that for a later post. But as I promised last week, here is my latest project.


This settee sat in my booth for months but not even a nibble. It wasn't really my taste in fabrics.  I knew I would have to bring it home for a makeover. Lucky for me it was pretty easy. After I stripped the fabric, I painted the frame. Of course I used the DIYers fabric of choice, the 'drop cloth.' Quick and easy.



Here is the settee all pretty in my booth. Heavenly, isn't she?!  What a difference some paint and fabric make.  It went from a little dated to sweet and sassy!  Let's look at her again.


She was snapped up in no time! I hope the new owner loves her.

    Your bench looks very similar to one from the late 1800's....it was $2,500!!! Awesome job with this redo!

  3. Love the new look. Drop cloth is my favorite fabric of choice too. I'm not surprised it sold so fast. Nice job, Dee from My Painted Stuff.
