Here's a peek at a project I started yesterday:
It's a Craigslist find that less than 24 hours ago, looked like this:
I'm thinking the tufting will have to go. I like the blue and white stripes, but I'll cover the cushions in a more neutral fabric. The stripes will still play a role, though. You'll see.
I also want to find a colorful fabric to use in another spot. Something with poppies, perhaps? I like this fabric from a bedroom designed by Sara Gilbane.
And on another note, I'm planning a trip to NYC next weekend/early next week. I'm trying to expand my horizons and go places I've never been before. The ABC Carpet and Home outlet is one of them. Let me know if you have any other suggestions!
