I had the idea awhile back to buy an inexpensive well-made love seat and have it reupholstered. I was under the impression that it would much less costly than it actually was, but in the end I have a really pretty piece of furniture.
I bought this Ethan Allen love seat on craigslist for $125. Here's the before:
And here it is redone! I'm really happy with the overall effect.
Call me a picky perfectionist, but the placement of the flower designs are not where I expected/hoped they would be. The symmetrical design makes it look very retro and less modern, but I've decided that that can be cool too. The back is the most bothersome part... but everyone likes owls, right?
Now to find a big rug to tie it all together.
