We both fell in love with a settee we saw in the store. Dawn had been lookin for one for her living room and I had been looking for something for my bedroom.
Here is a photo of us at my anniversary party a few years back. People have always told us that we look like sisters, and whats funny is that we have very similar taste in things. Especially clothes. But on that day we both fell in love with the same settee.
Here is a photo of the settee back then. It had a gold fabric that I wasn't crazy about but it was in such great condition and we both loved the shape of it. Well Dawn decided not to take it and I decided to buy it, consulting her of course.
Now I have done little projects here and there fixing old furniture or reupholstering a small chair but never something of this size. I assumed that I would be able to do it. Boy was I wrong. After 4 attempts with a nail gun, a staple gun and glue gun and sewing by hand I decided to give up.
Well a few months ago I found a wonderful little company that gave me a great deal with the settee. I picked a fabric and I had it in a week and a half.
I had asked for tufting but the curved shape behind it made it impossible. The tiny little buttons were a perfect touch to satisfy my tufting need.
Here it is in my bedroom with my favorite painting above. I love my settee and am so happy that I bought it and had it done by a professional. I could have never done such a job.
And as for Dawn and her search for her settee, she found an equally perfect one for her livingroom.
Dawn found hers in the same store we visit often, the same place I found mine. I love hers as well. Love the rattan on the sides too.
