well..I finally got the courage to make my first attempt at re-upholstering.................
I LOVE THEM!!!! Don't look too closely, because there are many flaws. I even cheated and used a glue gun(*gasp*) I know! I ran out of staples and wanted to see how to drape the fabric. I figured I could refix with the staples.. but none the less...I still love them! It looks so much better than the fabric it came with. I know the lighting is dark...but it's late....I'll post proper photos soon. Oh and my couches came in! I have to return the love seat for a new one..that's a story for another time. Tomorrow may be a beach day! Gotta squeeze in the last days of summer!

before -empty roomLIVING ROOM- In progress
(Forgive my junk on the left..I wanted to show the wall we took out. These photos were originally taken to show my sis : ) Eventually there will be a kitchen island on the left....one day.
It's very neutral right now... those curtains might have to be changed out for some COLOR. I just used what I had for now..... So far I love it!

When you first enter through the door and come up, you see the living room. Well if you look up you will see that thing that somebody called a chandelier..sorry. I'm sure it was loved by them. So that will be part of the makeover too! above- this view is as you walk to the top stop facing the room. The only 2 usable 'walls' are what you see the window wall and back wall. To the left it is mostly open to the dining room.
The room measurements are 17' 10 1/2" long by 11' 4 " wide. I'll do a sketch too for a better visual.
So now the sofas..... I bought the Macy's Chloe sofa in granite. I know that's not the best photo...the website doesn't show my color...
(this is the sofa in cream, once again mine will be granite)
OK let the craziness begin... I mean let the fun begin!
