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.
