Two Couches

My client wanted to make her room less "formal"---she said no one ever goes in this room, because they are afraid to sit on the white couches. She wants the room to be used and lived in.


 COUCHES---BEFORE



 COUCHES--AFTER--She went with a great tan/gold solid that had a chunky linen weave look to it.

 I did 1.5" blind hem on the skirt


 She was still in the process of picking out new pillow fabrics to make the room less "formal"-- But I think they still look great with the old pillows.

The back cushions were attached--so I cut them off and covered them separately.

SIDE NOTE#1---Anniversary date was GREAT! We got to rapel down Bridal Veil Falls in Provo Canyon.
 Here I am coming down....

Suited up and ready to go!

SIDE NOTE#2--I've been thinking about my next project for the house. I want to take out the wall to the right of the front door and open up that corner. There's a spare bedroom behind that wall now, and that's where I want to put the office. I also want to remove the carpet from the stairs and do wood stairs and a double hand rail with Craftsman style newel posts.



Here's my inspiration pic for the stairs and newell posts. This pic is from Remodelaholic Blog. She shares how they did it.

You do such wonderful work.

Did you remove the original seat covers before putting the new on or do you just leave them on?
