I made a quick stop in one of the local Goodwills last week
and this vintage love seat immediately caught my eye.
I circled it a couple of times trying to decide if it should be my next project.
I was on the fence, until another customer started hovering.
That's all I needed to push me over the edge!
I grabbed the tag and sprinted to the cash register.
This little gem was all mine for the low price of $45.
I texted a picture of it to my good friend, Lisa.
She happened to be shopping with her sister and shared the picture with her.
Her sister was a bit horrified and probably gagged a little.
Lisa and I go way back, and fortunately,
she has faith in me and has been a witness to a few of my thrifting transformations.
She quickly assured her doubting sister that, this too, would turn out okay.
I have no idea what I will have it reupholstered in,
but I loved the lines and I have been on the lookout for a new love seat for a while now.
I found this love seat on Etsy for $450.
The style is almost identical.
I am always drawn to a single cushion look on sofas and loves seats.
I am planning to have my upholsterer make one long seat cushion.
Now I just need to decide where to put it.
I have a few ideas up my sleeve.
Again, so sorry my posts have been few and far between lately.
I have tons of posts planned in my head, but finding the time to sit down
and make them happen is proving to be difficult.
My kids and work have been keeping my very busy the last couple of weeks.
Funny, I thought I would never be as busy as I was with a newborn, a two year old and a four year old.
I was wrong!
