I'm pretty sure this is a first. I'm sharing a piece of furniture on my blog that I didn't paint. I didn't add the nail head trim. I didn't find it on a curb, or have a friend donate it to me, or find it in a thrift shop. I bought it brand new. Ordered it from Art Van!
I love tweed look and this oatmeal colored fabric. I also wanted nail head trim to add some spice and elegance. I found the style I wanted had it custom ordered at Art Van. I'm pretty sure the young salesman working there wanted to wring my neck after I changed my order about forty two times. (I was trying to decide on coordinating chairs and fabrics and second guessing myself - again and again and again....)
I love pretty legs. Which is why I'm a little freaked out about my own legs. Out of desperation for some poison ivy relief, I stupidly took to the internet and read about how a guy scraped his and put rubbing alcohol on it. I did. It burned. Which actually felt better than the itch. And puss ran out everywhere. And now I have some nasty looking sores THAT BETTER GO AWAY!!!!! Eh, I'm in my thirties now. Who really cares anymore if I have scars and spider veins? ;)
But back to the subject at hand, I love these legs on the sofa!
By the way, I feel so prim and proper when I use the word "sofa".
When I grew up it was a "couch". Couch just doesn't sound right when I'm typing on my blog.... or now that I live in the 'Old Lefere Mansion'. I'm trying, I'm trying.
I'm going to give you a bigger view of the living room here but FIRST... how about a quick peek at this room when we bought the house:
It was so grand and beautiful and spacious and I was so excited about it and then I started putting furniture into and nothing seemed to flow and I couldn't make it feel right and so I just sold all my furniture - rug and all - and decided to start over! :) (I wouldn't normally have done such a thing, but I had a nice gift to help me!)
Did you notice the fireplace makeover in the two previous pictures? In the before - pretty much nada. In the present day photo? A stunner! Thanks to my hubby who built that mantel out of scraps from out of our barn one afternoon - check that post out HERE.
I'm also pretty geeked about my massive new rug. I was going to play it safe and get neutral. Well okay, I actually did. Got it, laid it down, it was too small, and too..... neutral! Have you ever tried mailing back a massive rug? That's a whole 'nother story. My lands. Anyways, I got this rug from Overstock. They are awesome and I love the colors and how it ties everything all together!
Hope you enjoyed this post - it's not very often (have I ever??) that I post about a new piece of furniture. Something I DIDN'T find on the curb, or in Goodwill, or had to paint and fix up.... BRAND NEW! I can't believe I bought brand new..... It happens every. once. in. a. great. while.
