Metamorphosis Monday -Sofa & Chair Makeover

Posted by MAKMU ta On Sunday, March 11, 2012 No comments

Happy Metamorphosis Monday!  If you're unfamiliar with this event, it is a blog gathering hosted by Susan of Between Naps On The Porch in which she invites her readers/followers to share their personal before and after projects.  Below are 2  of my recent projects that I want to share.

This slip covered sofa was purchased in April 2010 from IKEA for only $399.00.  I purchased it for  a spare bedroom that we converted into a playroom for Daniel.  Now, the sofa is heading to the cabin .  Daniel's playroom activities rarely include sitting on the sofa and eventually we are going to make it his bedroom so it the sofa wasn't necessary.

I purchased 2 additional sets of Ektorp's slipcovers.  One in white and one in red. To give the slipcovers a more custom look and to compliment the cabin's "rustic elegance" I purchased several yards of Wright's 1 3/8" wide Greek Key braided metallic gold machine washable trim.

In addition to the trim, I found a metallic gold self adhesive decorative motif by Conso for $9.99 each.

White slipcover-$49.99

Red Slipcover-$149.00


This chair was purchased back in the early 90's.  It's been in the garage for the last year or so waiting for me to deliver it to the Goodwill.

I purchased a can of primer,black varnish and a small jar of DecoArt's Splendid Gold metallic paint.

I also purchased this Cacharel pattern fabric by Waverly at one of my favorite fabric/upholstery stores, Triad Plus for only $8.00 a yard.

Luckily, my procrastination paid off for the chair and it got a reprieve from Goodwill.  Now, with a new look it will have a second life at the cabin.
