- The Purple Settee: Before and After

I spotted this Settee on Craigslist and I had to have it. Instantly, I fell in love with it. Thanks to my husband, we bought it and brought it home the next day.



I wanted a bench or two chairs at the end of my bed and I knew this sette will look perfect. I went fabric hunting while I was waiting for the black spray paint to dry,and sanding was done by my husband ( you can check out  here how I used the black stain to paint my lovely console table). Many choices, I got lost. Finally I made up my mind. Brocade fabric is the winner. Not recommended as an upholstery fabric but after all its only to be used by my husband or I.  I cannot get enough of my husband's joke on how careful he is when sitting down on it. It is totally perfect, he just likes to tease me.

Initial fabric options:







I ended up using the back side of the fabric as the face of the settee.
Here is the completed settee after.

I cut the fabric a little bit smaller than I should so it turned out not so perfect but it is ok for me since it is my second upholstery project after this one:)

I made this silver pillow, I will post a tutorial soon




The hardest thing was to put this Nail heads...I didnt like how they turned out to be I think I will re-do them using my spoon spacing method .Oh yes I called it a method lol

Hope you like my crazy style
