Before & After: A Trashed Curbside Dresser Eve of Reduction
|9/20/12 6:36 PM|
If it is a well made sofa and you love the lines, it's always worth reupholstering especially if you shop around for a good upholsterer who offers a fair price (true, that can be a challenge!) Some of the newer affordable sofas are poorly constructed and why add to a landfill?? That Ikea curtain fabric is extremely durable and the panels are a great price and you get a LOT of fabric from them. I have used them to make bedskirts, a chair slipcover and in my daughter's first college apartment, we draped and tucked them over the hideous furniture. The fabric went on to being bedskirts after a couple of years. As for linen for upholstery, I had a great sofa custom made from Norwalk (not sure they still exist) and the sofa is now 13 years old, in perfect condition and in daily use including a dog. The original fabric was linen and I couldn't kill it. I got tired of the design and had it recovered after 9 years, but it was like new. So there! I will keep recovering this sofa as it's a classic design and so comfortable. Nice job on the sofa by the way...it's not all about me!
From Curtains To Couch

Bathroom: I would paint the walls a rich chocolate brown. Although I love grey, I just don't see it in that space. Find a really crisp white (maybe waffle texture) shower curtain. A white shower curtain is quite a large area when closed and will help keep the space from feeling dark. White ceiling. Clean up the tiles. Don't see the window, but maybe a bamboo blind, various browns, with white painted window trim. What's on the floor? Maybe a fun bath mat...brown, black and white? Brown, white and an accent color?
