Well, Hello!!! Sorry, ive been slacking on the blog posting again, its just so hard to find an extra hour in the day lately! Im rearranging my schedule next week and trying out a new “routine” hoping that i can get in some more computer time – so hopefully more posts are in our future :)
Anyways, i got this sweet couch and chair a while back and knew it had some potential. Luckily for me the guy next door to my shop does upholstery, and he did an awesome job!!
I wasnt a big fan of the original tufting and wanted something more casual. I just had it covered in a painters drop cloth so its super durable, and it looks like linen. Extra foam was added on the back so the tufting could be covered up.
The only thing that i had to do was paint the wood (Honeymilk by Valspar) and then add the little decorative trim to cover up the staples. I only burnt my finger about 10 times with the hot glue gun – maybe i should stick to painting?!
I am lovin that scalloped back!
How cute is that?! Its the most comfy couch ever – i have been taking some breaks on that couch while im at the shop – ssshhhh ;) My client is coming to pick it up tomorrow – i hope she likes it as much as i do!!
Did you notice the “hello” sign on my barn wood? One of my sweetest clients ever (Hi Leslie!!) asked me if i could cut letters/words like she had been seeing online. I never have, but didnt think it could be too hard. I dont have a tutorial for this, but basically i found a font i liked, had it blown up by kinkos, cut out the word then traced it onto some MDF. Then i just cut out the word with a jigsaw and painted it. This one is painted Sherwin Williams “Stop”. How freaking cute is this sign!! I am for sure going to make me one in yellow :)
If you want your own “Hello” sign,they will be up for sale in the Sweet Pickins Shop! (you can choose your color)
