Changes In Our Living Room March 19, 2014
Greetings, from sunny Northern California!
What a glorious time of year, here! I’m in my back yard typing this,while a very happy bird is singing his heart out!
Today, is a day off, so I’m taking it slow. I wanted to show you a small change in our living room, so here goes. (It might be a nice break, from all things “shop”!
My parents are both keeping a close eye on me from heaven, now days, while I take care of some of their earthly treasures.
This extra wide chair was one of my favorites, in their home. Back then, it was covered with a blue, cream and green striped velvet, with brass nail head trim. The seat cushion is down filled, so it’s extra comfy.
I had it covered in a nubby hemp fabric, from Hemp Traders, and the linen for the seat cushion and back rest, was from fabric.com. The combo is neutral, but the mix of textures adds some interest. I also darkened up the wood, before having it covered, just using some glaze, from the shop.
Of course, nail head trim, in shiny chrome, replaced the antiqued brass trim.
Have you ever added nail head trim to an upholstered piece? Not easy! That’s why I usually leave it to the pro’s!
