New Love Seat

A while back I saw an adorable zig zag sofa on I Suwannee, And when we decided to move to the beach I knew that I wanted something similar. So I searched Craigslist for a little love seat and I found this baby for only $10!!

Now I know what you thinking, its hideous at best! But with that little round back I saw some serious potential! So I ordered the fabric, and off the upholstery man it went!


I was not wrong! Look how cute it turned out!!!
In other news, were finally getting settled at the beach, been painting like mad!! Still lots to do but... I guess I cant complain too much this is the view from the front door!! 

Now run out and get something re upholstered! I gotta tell you its soo exciting to take an ugly piece of furniture and give it a face lift. Hey you gotta do your part to be green and recycle right ;-)

(if your in the San Diego area and need the name of the upholstery man let me know)

I've reupholstered a lot of furniture I've found on Craigslist and I love the feeling after wards when you realize how something so ugly and unwanted can look so fabulous!

That sofa is too cute now! You just inspired me for our master bedroom. I've been saving the money for a settee or smallish sofa but this would be SO much cheaper!

I love this fabric! Can you tell me what it is? I have seen all kinds of zig-zag recently but love this color combo.

Thanks!
