Tan Linen Chair and Matelesse couch

Barbara has been a client for probably 10 yrs. She had me come to do a chair for her family room. She was deciding between two more of a straight back formal wingback and this chunky large wingback. This one was up in her loft and between the two of us we hauled it down to put it in place to see which one fit the space better. We decided that this chair was a better quality and more comfy than the formal wingback.

Chair-- BEFORE

Chair-- AFTER....out of tan linen, which laid beautifully. I didn't have a chance to iron the wrinkles out during the delivery. 


Here is a photo of her couch I did 7 yrs ago! I never took pics of it. It was a cream matelesse with a 5"box pleat skirt all the way around.

It still looks BEAUTIFUL! I don't think my boys would have been that kind to a couch for 7 years.

I did a band around the front edge to fit in with the curve of the couch before I attached the box pleat skirt.

SIDE NOTE---- Cabin deck and stair project

AFTER pic--- Handrail and lower deck is DONE!!!

Here is the lower deck section getting finished.

First two sections of completed handrail! I was SUPER EXCITED!  I bought the posts and balusters about a year ago off and our local ReStore store.

 Heber's Brother and our friend Jared came up and helped.


Since we removed the outside stair case, Heber and the big boys built steps into the grade with railroad ties. It was quite the weekend! I spent my time taking the boys on four wheeler rides and putting back on all my slipcovers (I took them all home to wash them...8 loads to wash all the slipcovers, curtains, and duvet covers). The little boys helped shovel gravel and bring it up the hill.

Hey, I found you through The "Bits of Everything" Ladies. I love your couches they all look fab. I also love your pillow redoes. I've been wanting to redo my pillows in my living room and hopefully my bedroom as well. Kristen
