Makeover Time!

I snapped up this little beauty the other day (yes, eBay, yes, bargain!) - it's a 1930s scallop-back settee in great condition. It's dainty, at 125cm wide.

Whilst there's nothing wrong with the upholstery, it's not exactly "me". A little bit tapestry, you know? I have it in mind for my bedroom (blue/white/red), but would like to be able to shift it around between rooms when my mood dictates. So, what colour to do? My first thought is Old Faithful, white. But I do have two small children and a cat that likes to both laze about on couches AND laze about in dust baths. Besides, it may get lost against the wall. So I unearthed my stash of pics of couchy goodness.

What would you do?



Speaking of makeovers, check out my beautiful sister!!

And After...

You can see her here... I reckon she deserves a vote! Well, when the voting starts in mid May, that is.

  1. white - no definitely not practical. Pink - good for me, not you or hubby, blue sounds good, but which blue. Have fun deciding.

  2. Kerryn, when I saw your blog title & the pic of the chair, my first thought was "oh, not Kerryn colours at all!", LOL... good luck figuring out what colour you will re-cover it with!
    Happy Easter x
