Another revamped piece of furniture!
This cane-back sofa was an auction find last January that took me about nine months to finally get around to painting. Here she is, last fall, minus her groovy harvest gold velvety cushions.
She was really in fantastic shape as the caning was pristine. Plus, look at those turned legs and arm details!
I painted her in October and promptly delivered her to the upholsterer. Since I try to conserve gas and keep myself motivated to stay on top of projects, I decided that I wouldn't pick up this piece until this living room set was painted and ready for new fabric.
Despite my best intentions, the sofa spent Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's and Valentine's Day, waiting for my return. Fortunately, the upholsterer I work with is a kind, understanding and--most importantly--patient man.
But now she's back and looking oh-so-lovely. I feel confident that Cindy at Cottage Instincts would approve of the color scheme.
Paint color: Benjamin Moore Wythe Blue
(lightly antiqued with a Minwax stain/poly combo)
Fabric: 100% linen, accented with cording and double welting
So fresh and apropos for spring!
Karan of Spruce Antiques and Interiors in Hillsborough, NC, picked her up today and will be offering this piece starting this weekend. Unfortunately, Spruce doesn't have a blog at the moment for more details, but if you're local and want to check out the store, it's located at 383 Ja-Max Drive in Daniel Boone Village off I-85. The hours are 11-5 Wednesday through Saturday and 1-5 on Sunday.
Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
