So one time I was at an auction and this settee came up for bid.
I wasn't planning on buying it, but when the bidding started, well it actually...it didn't start.
The auctioneer (is that what they're called?) started the bidding and NO ONE raised a paddle.
And I felt so bad for the settee!
(I feel bad for Christmas trees that don't get bought so this is right in line with that kind of crazy.)
I didn't what it to feel left out, so I raised my paddle, and sealed the deal - for a whooping $50.
Don't hate. :)
At first I wasn't planning on keeping it, but one afternoon on a whim I hauled it out of the garage and into our front room.
Our front room acts as our foyer/formal sitting/dining room and I want a little sitting area, but any couch-ish thing that we brought in had to be a very specific size.
And this fits perfectly.
I'm thinking of doing something like this inspired by Restoration Hardware.
Not the deconstructed part, but the fabric and finish on the frame. Probably a lot lighter on the finish actually, but you get the idea.
And of course with a double welt. A double welt is always best. :)
I found a similar fabric HERE.
Don't you think it would look great with our future dark walls?!
Now let's move onto the highboy.
This was a local Craiglists score.
But I'm torn on what to do with it.
Or some English Yellow with off antique white drawer details and some tortoise shell knobs.
Or what about a rich, vibrant blue with chunky wood knobs?
What do you think?
Green, yellow, blue or something else entirely??
