A Sneak Peak

Yesterday I had a very nice surprise.  I called the upholsterer to see if I could bring in my sofa.  He already had my chair and ottoman and I was trying to get all the upholstering done before summer's end.  The main reason, besides the fact that I want my room finished, is because I need my son home from college to help with all the moving up and down the stairs.  Turns out, not only could I bring in my sofa, but the other pieces were done!  Hallelujah! 

Here's the fabric that I used - a nice cream and cranberry toile:

It's a Waverly fabric that I got for a fantastic price.  Originally, I wanted to do my sofa in this fabric but turned out I didn't have enough.  So, I went to plan B, swapped the fabrics (and ordered extra of the small check as I didn't have nearly enough of that for the sofa).  

The upholsterer had my chair and ottoman right by the front door when I arrived.  He said he had gotten lots of comments on how great the pieces turned out.  I, personally, was elated with the outcome.  I told my hubby that I planned on living in the chair for the next few weeks.   It's so comfortable and feminine.  What do you think?

In a couple of weeks, I'll have the sofa reveal.

Oh, how lovely! That is precisely the sort of chair and ottoman I want for my bedroom and I adore toile fabrics. Enjoy. :)

Thanks, Deanna. I'm thinking of expanding the toile to my bedroom,too, if I can sneak it past my hubby.
