French Settee Re-Covery

Latest French Settee Re Upholstery..
While this sofa (too) is glorious in it's original style-fabric is a little dirty-worn &slightly outdated & just not my style.
The last one I did- that was very similar-I really liked that one, And did love the way it looked in shoppe-
So I wanted to do this one in the same style.

Sanding it down-adding some Primer-Paint and Distressing,
Sure to highlight the perfect carved features.

I went with a Beautiful Soft Neutral Linen, made some coordinating pillows, and used Vintage Tacking for a bit of Rustic ambiance.

Just looking at the detail in the wood work, makes my heart pitter-patter..

Just Darling, Super Comfortable, Super Soft and Sold!!

Can't wait to start on my next one..

  3. Hello...

    Absolutely gorgeous!!! What a gifted and talented lady you are! I can't even imagine tackling such a project and sure wished that I had the know-how! I think it's lovely painted white and distressed and the fabric you chose is perfect! Ohhh yes...I would love to have a pretty sofa/settee like this!

    Warmest wishes,

  4. I have a couch similar to this I'm looking to reupholster, I love the look of this! I want to do something similar, so it's still classy, but comfy. You hit just the right balance!

  5. It turned our beautifully. I can picture something stenciled smack-dab in the middle of the seat cushion.

  6. You did a great job! I'll head over and vote.

  7. It looks fabulous, just fabulous! I just went over and voted for you!

  8. The settee is gorgous! What a wonderful job you did.

  9. Absolutely gorgeous! I just finally bought a similar settee myself and plan on doing this very thing. However- I have ZERO sewing skills :). will you publish a tutorial on how you recovered this? I was planning on using my staple gun, fabric, glue gun and trim- but I'd love to use the tacks on yours (also on my original sofa).Again- your is GORGEOUS! Fab job

  10. I just love this settee. Makes one want to curl up in front of a fire place in the winter or relax on a summer porch.
