I picked up this Antique Little Gem in the Bay Area from some Brothers who have done some picking for me in the past.
While it is Totally Worn-Stained & shows it has been loved once before-
It also has such Beauty..
The Beautiful Wood Carved Trim, with little Flowers is so Darling.
The Legs are Straight and just as Decorative, with the Pretty Corner edging.
My husband & son Helped me pry out each and everyone of those tacks-One at a Time, and the whole thing was framed with them.
I spent almost one whole day stripping this Piece down to bare bones- every nail-tack-old fabric-replacing cushions-
(sometimes the stripping down takes just as long as re-upholstering them)
I use the Foam for my Cushions and then Cover in a Super Thick Batting then Thick muslin and then My Fabric.
But then again, That is the difference between today's pieces and yesterdays, They are made so well- no taking short cuts.
I Painted-Sanded to the shade I love,
Then Re-Upholstered in a Textured Linen, Made Double welting and used Vintage Tacks for the Trim work.
While I have done separate removable Cushions- I don't prefer them- Unless they are Down filled (which is quite pricey) and for Re-Sale that isn't my best option, and in order to keep the cost down so I can pass it on to customers, i choose the sleek-simple-cleans lines of all one cushion.
This Time instead of all Linen Down Filled Pillows, I went with 2 French Script with black writing and linen back-(which ties in the tacking trim) and 2 linen in the overstuffed Down-which I always include with sofa price.
All Finished and at shoppe-Thanks for letting my share!!!
