My client had bought some great furniture for her sunroom...and then realized she had made a huge mistake. It was too dark and not the bright airy feel she decided she wanted.


Sunroom-- BEFORE

Sunroom--AFTER she bought some quilted cream fabric for the couch and and some cream cotton canvas for the chairs.


We used the quilted fabric for the couch but used the chair fabric for the piping. It would have been painfully thick to use the same fabric for the piping. The quilted fabric had batting quilted to it on the back side.


The yellow pillow on the couch from Pottery Barn was her inspiration for the buttons on the back of the chairs.


Canvas piping on the couch.


Large 2" coconut buttons with loops.







This sunroom...turned out BEAUTIFUL!!!!



Side Note--- Huge projects at the cabin this weekend! Heber removed the outside staircase a few weeks ago. This weekend we are finishing the lower deck and putting a new handrail on the deck.
