Well, it’s finally finished. The ratty old loveseat is refreshed and ready for her new home. Remember this:
As Cousin Eddie from Christmas Vacation would say, “It’s a good quality piece,” made by Broyhill, solidly built, and cheap, to boot!
Sanded, masked, painted stained, here she is ready for her cushions:
I am really happy with the way this front part came out
here it is in the living room. I didn’t really stage the room, just stuck it there and took a few pics. Didn’t notice the bird pictures on the wall behind it are crooked. Oh Well…
This wasn’t my first choice of fabric, but what I wanted wasn’t in the budget right now. So I used these curtains from Target:
It took two sets of curtains, since the cushions are very deep, and I did them in one piece. Super easy, and I’m usually a disaster at sewing cushions. Thank you to my wonderful MIL for the tip! The color is a little light for the room, but it will do for now, and I’ll probably treat it with Scotchguard, anyway.
So to sum up:
Craigslist loveseat: $40
spray paint, stain and sandpaper: $22
10 yard bolt of batting from JoAnn: $12.70 (I had a coupon!)
Two sets of curtains from Target: $40.26
New loveseat: $114.96
This was my inspiration:
