Hi friends! I have been adding color to the house as fast as I can. Though I love a monochromatic scheme, I don't live in in a Belgian castle. Our home is more suited to English style...and that means color!
We have finally saved enough to have all the upholstered treasures reupholstered.
It has made a world of difference!
Today, I want to share the dog room. It was formerly the music room, but the new piano was too big and we had to put it in the family room. This is also the game room and the cat's favorite room, oddly. lol
I had the starburst upholstery for years. I found it on Craigslist. It is perfect for the game table chairs. There is still a LOT left over. I am trying to decide where to use it? I think it would be perfect on the Louis XV sofa that is still in the garage!
The chair to the left of the painted secretary is upholstered in Schumacher Sherbrooke toile. I just love it!
In retrospect, covering a settee in velvet with so many pets, was not one of my most brilliant ideas. There is a reason lint brushes are made of velvet!
One of each, please!
The stool is covered in Scalamandre toile. It was a sample. Just enough for one small seat!
The green toile on the chairs was found on ebay. $50 for 7 yards. Just enough to cover two chairs and an ottoman!
Clarence is our official chair inspector! He has to sit on every piece that comes into the house, to make sure it is comfortable enough!
The startburst fabric again. I could do an entire room in this fabric!
Every item you see, except for Clarence, was found on Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, Bookoo and OfferUp. Even with upholstery, we paid far less than what an Ikea room would cost. It will last far longer, as well!
Next time, I will share the library!
Hoping you are well!
