Just one last post for 2011...
Couldn't quite get the sofa finished before the New Year but should have the finishing touches on in the next couple of days. The hole repair in the bottom frame turned out pretty well and if you didn't know it was there, I doubt you'd ever notice.
The last of 4 coats is on the frame, arms and legs and except for adding a couple of small brackets to reinforce the back frame to the bottom area and some reassembly, I'm pretty much just a few hours away from finishing!
Got a call yesterday from my upholstery super heroes, (your cushions are ready)
Yes!!! Perfect timing! Want a peek?
These are going to look so great on this sofa! Vintage bark cloth that my wife had picked up a while back. We likely had over 20 yards that she almost stole and probably have enough left for another whole sofa. It was all I could do not to take out and drop on the frame to adore. I'm holding out until everything is ready for the total impact which I should be posting in the next couple of days.
Looking forward to a great new year and here's wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year!
