French Settee

I have had this lil piece for some time now-The legs caught my eye-and I couldn't bare to leave it behind.
Not sure what I was going to do with it.
The part I love best about my job, trying something new-seeing how it will turn out.
I have done linens, done burlap, pinks,toile, paisley, so my husband spotted this French Manuscript Fabric one day while we were at JoAnnes, So figured I would give it a try. 
Instead of Doing individual Cushions, I opted for one single large one, giving it more clean simple lines-also using invisible seems.

I also decided to use tacks, instead of making my piping,
I really love the tacks, more rustic..

Before we took to shoppe, I had to set up my lil vignette in our front yard..
You can see the Black Distressed turned legs..
I made two coordinating Down Filled Pillows , one in a dark  linen, and one in the same french manuscript..

And here it is on our Front Window, with all the accessories..
Think Hubby, has a good eye..


  1. I have longingly eyed that fabric quite a few times at Joanne's. Love how it turned out!

  2. Love the fabric! It really updates the piece.
