So I thought I would share a personal project…”personal” meaning my own small Living Room. We had a kitchen fire in September (everyone was fine) and have started the process of replacing or repairing the things that were damaged. Our white slipcovered sofa and green silk chair were trashed from water and smoke damage.
This is our old apartment but shows the “BEFORE” of the sofa…
***SOFA – BEFORE***
My sofa had to basically be re-built (notice the new arms) and I made the switch from slipcover to a neutral upholstery in a linen/cotton blend. The green chair was skirted and I added a gray cotton velvet. I’ve been wanting to de-colorify our place for a while now, and all it needs is a punch of hot pink peonies! (side note – our coffee table is usually more “styled” but alas, the box o’ accessories is most likely in my husband’s car trunk left over from the frantic hustle pre-Sadie Bday party).
The green silk chair was never my favorite piece in the world (really used as a desk chair in our bedroom but in our new place the scale was better for our LR). Silk was obviously not my first choice and not practical for dog & baby.
And chair after….
Skirted in a gray cotton velvet that changes color as the day goes on.
Here’s another “AFTER” of the same chair. My Mom also had a pair, so we had them re-done in a punchy coral and added a box-pleat skirt. These are the head chairs at their Dining Room Table. Just waiting for the go-ahead on aqua/chartreuse wallpaper and silk turquoise drapes!
I hoped you enjoyed this FF. It is always extremely nerve racking for me to share personal projects but I love it when others do, so why not??
