Vintage Linen Sofa

The Beautiful Lines of the Old Vintage/Antique Sofas
are just so captivating to me.
The detail of the carved wood-darling feet-curvature..
They take so much time & are quite Pricey to do-half way through, I wonder why i ever take them on & sware I won't do  another one.

After I Painted-Put a Finish on it-
I went with a Textured Linen-
For me I love the look of one solid cushion-

I used Vintage Tacking to trim it up-added some Coordinating Pillows.

And now that I'm done- I love -LOVE it-
Here it sits in Shoppe Front window.

The detail of the intricate wood work shows perfectly through the Beaten White paint.

And Now that this one is done-& sitting in window-
AND turned out just as I hoped.
I can't wait to work on next one:)
