So my fabulous client is about 3 weeks away from moving into her newly constructed "modern farmhouse". She brought me, what I am calling, "load 1" a week ago. She had an ottoman, piano bench, a sweet settee she score on ksl , 18 pillows and a chair with those coveted Pottery Barn feet. I say load one because load 2 consist of a couch, 2 swivel rockers and 3 window seat cushions. Just to clarify... these pictures were taken in my catch all room while the basement is under construction. This is not a "modern farmhouse", although one can dream.... Anyways, lets begin.
Here is the ottoman, sure it is worn but it was in great shape, so we slipped it in a black and cream ticking stripe and did the piping out of what will be the fabric for the couch.
The Piano bench. My client is going to paint the legs black, so use your imagination... I added a small piece of foam on either side to box up the bench and make it even.
She found the settee on ksl for I think $15! Sure it was ugly.....
But check it out now!!! Bam!
I know, right?? AMAZING! She was not sure what to do for the skirt. Her chair and piano bench had box pleats, her couch and ottoman have box skirts, so I said, why not a knife pleat?? This piece is actually going in her master bedroom so She decided to do the knife pleat. She will be painting the legs a nice soft blue to go with the rest of the room. I love how it turned out!!!
Now for the chair! I love this chair and she did too! She was soo happy with the results! We gave it a box pleat skirt to doll it up. I think it did the trick. Never mind the garage...thats how I roll!
Even though it is warn, this chair is super soft and comfy. Now it lures you in and you won't want to leave!
I can't deny that I LOVE A GOOD TICKING STRIPE! I feel like you can never go wrong with the stripe.
And finally, she gave me a stack of random fabrics to make pillows for the master bedroom and other areas of the house. We ended up with 18 pillows in various sizes. So here is a glimpse of what we did. Her house is gonna rock!!
I will be busy working the "Part 2" for the next 2 weeks. I can't wait to see it all come together!
Side note: During all of this madness I managed to squeeze in a bench cushion for my new favorite person, Shelley!! I am sure you have heard of Shelley if you are a blog stalker like myself. anyways, she has been working on a redo in her home and needed a cushion made, so make it, i did! She bought a pillow from me during Bijou Market and loved it so...here I am making her a cushion. Once she is able to do the big reveal I post a more "professional" picture, but till then, you get this.
i hope you all enjoy the rest of your saturday night! Peace!
