This post at Southern Thresholds reminded me of something I did in my first house. And since I’m fresh out of projects in this house, I thought I’d do a little “My First House” tonight.
Sorry the pictures are such poor quality. :(
This Target loveseat is one of the few brand new purchases we made for our house. And whaddayaknow? After a few months, I hated it. It was way too contemporary for the look I was going for.
But what’s a poor-newlywed-whose-husband-hates-when-she-changes-her-mind to do?
Throw a vintage bedspread over it!
Much more of the cottage look I was after. Of course there was a lot of fabric, but I just folded it over in back.
And that’s how it lived forever after. (Or at least until I sold it to my sister-in-law when we moved.)
(And see the ugly turquoise basket that I repainted here?)
