We’ve strategically named most of the pieces of furniture in the house.
Roomate Kate and I picked up some tufted sofas. The upholstery is kinda wack, but we like it. (a white brocade w/ gold buttons). She soaked the cushion covers for a day in Oxy Clean and then ran them through the washer with a mix of Tide & Care Bear detergent. True enough, they cleaned right up.
The shape of this thing is begging me to recover in an unassuming cotton or linen, maybe even a large scale floral – perhaps paint the wood a complimentary solid. Other option – a tea stained linen or grain sackish material and distress the wood, taking it almost down to its grain… What would you do?
I’m thinking about it over breakfast and listening to Caribou – Lalibela[audio:http://theestateofthings.com/music/lalibela.mp3]
And now a quick word from our sponsors!
