A different loveseat.

My wife is changing her mind almost as fast as I can get the work done. That’s ok with me, It’s her house and I want her to be happy. She found a loveseat on the street and said – Perfect size! Make it look like it goes with the couch. Wow.

It was too much of a remake to style it exactly like the couch so I did a few modifications. The arms used to be shaped like peanuts and the back had a dated camel style. The old cushions where attached. On top of that, the loveseat Was a POSomething or other. Anyhow. The thing is now very comfortable and ten times sturdier. All the things that were cheap about the construction is gone. Sorry about not including before pictures – I didn’t take any.

I’m going to do a little photo tutorial on how to create basic throw pillows that are comfortable because I need to throw a couple on the couch to tie in the the decor.

Guess she’s really happy. Like she is really enjoying it.

Excellent work as usual! Did you upholster this out of the fabric you recently bartered for? Neat stitching on the front of the arm rests.

Howdy everyone. Thanks for the fine comments. Sorry I haven’t been on lately – lots and lots and lots of things to do. Robb – This was the hunk of fabric I have left that I didn’t barter for. Even though I haven’t had much time I’m about to finish a 5 piece sectional for the den. That one is out of the bartered for fabrics. Thanks for remembering!!
