This was the project I had hoped could be completed in a day...I was wrong!
It took two days
but I think it's really cute!
I started it on Saturday and had hoped to take it to work with me on Wednesday...
But here it is Thursday...and I have just finished.
It's not hard and I thought I would show you how!
Here it is right after I finished painting it a creamy white color that I mixed using alot of different whites and creams I had.
I guess I should back up a step or two...this was a twin size headboard
that I attached a rectangular box to ...
added two legs from my favorite hardware store...
And then embellished it with these really neat appliques and rope trim.
then it was painted...distressed...antiqued...
And now...back to where we were before I got carried away.
I then upholstered the plywood top with a 2" piece of foam...and batting...and washed burlap.
Next...I started attaching upholstery webbing as my pleated edging.
I work my way around the front and sides...
So that they were even (view from the back)
Then I screwed the upholstered plywood to the frame I made.
these are some of the pillows I completed last week...or was it the week before?
I can't remember!
There you have it!
One headboard settee...
This will be setting at the dining table (which was made from an antique door!)
in the French/Nordic Cottage...
At the Christmas Open House at Horton's!
There is just one last thing that must be done to my little settee before it makes it's way to the store...And that's a secret!
But I promise...I will show you after the Open House!
After all...I don't want to spoil everything!
I hope you have a delightful evening!
Blessings to one and all...donna
