Showing Off My Legs..

I am just loving the newly painted legs of our sofa...which has been a dormant project since November: I didn't think twice about covering up the wood with some white paint for a more shabby chic look.


I'm hoping that I can ride that love out and keep working on the re-upholstery job. Next step: fabric!

Oooo, nice legs. I like it painted - it looks fresh and pretty and the white actually makes the detail pop a bit more. Good choice. Looking forward to seeing your fabric choices.

That couch has some awesome potential. I can't wait to see what you do with it (you know, with all your spare time). :)

I can't wait to seeit finished. What are you envisioning for fabric? It it were mine, I'd do a modern graphic print to contrast with the vintage style of the sofa. Good luck with it!

It's going to be gorgeous! Can't wait to see what fabric you choose!

I'm awful at upholstery, but the one tip I do have is to take photos of EVERYTHING as you remove it.

I have a similar couch that needs to be re-upholstered but I don't want to pay someone because I know it will be very expensive. Looking forward to seeing the final project!
