My French Tattered Sofa Thrift Store Find!

Today I went JUNKIN' with a long time dear friend Cindy. We haven't gone junkin together in a good long while, as we are both so busy. If you follow along with the blog, then you already know what keeps me busy and Cindy works at a local antique mall and is busy with her family and grandkids. She found a literal motherload of things to sell in her shop, and I found some....mostly things for projects. My Killer find was this old French Sofa that I plan on redoing for my living room. I LOVE the lines and it's a nice long one at almost 8 ft.

I love Tattered, Elegant, Faded, Old Beauty:-)Too bad that the fabric is so faded and worn, as originally it was a FABULOUS shade of French Bleu, but it definitely needs an extreme makeover and new overstuffed down cushions. Cost was only $120, so I just had to have it! Any ideas on the transformation? I am thinking cream matelasse or perhaps linen.

Blissful Bird Basket Project For Spring

Are you freezing in the Northern tundra? In just checking the weather reports while having my morning coffee I am ever so grateful to be enjoying life in South Florida....where we are having a cold snap today in the 50's! I actually feel so energized with this weather, and it's as cold as I ever want to be...
