Project of the week- ottoman

As found.

As found.

I just picked up a sweet little bamboo/rattan ottoman that needed a cushion.  This was the perfect project to use more of the cobalt ikat print!  The rocker looks great in it and has sold and is moving out later this week.  I set to work this morning to get a round box cushion made for this piece. The project went very smooth.  I decided what diameter I needed and added an inch for seam allowance.  Then I cut a 3” strip make the side, also accounting for the seam allowance.  I machine stitched the piece together leaving a large enough opening to insert the foam pieces i cut then wrapped with batting.  After all was inserted, I pinned and hand stitched the cushion closed.  It is now available in my Etsy shop! 

A comfy treat for your feet!

The cushion featured medium grade upholstery fabric in a bright cobalt blue ikat print. Perfect for bohemian and eclectic decors.

Just in! Gold Velvet Hollywood Regency settee. This great find is such a cute compact size.  There are some fabric issues but it is usable and structural condition is good. It has been cleaned and sanitized.  If you are looking to customize this it would make a great restoration and I would work up a full quote for the work and help you select and obtain your choice of fabrics.  Customizing is so much fun and you get a fine vintage piece made new in a color you want.  We work together to accomplish this then I ship/deliver a fully reworked piece.  Priced as is, reach out if you want me to get a price on the upholstery work!

The skirt can be removed. 👌

Also just in: mahogany accent or lamp table.  Beautiful piece in excellent condition.  Great for mission and arts/crafts style.  Will mix with mcm just fine. Very nicely made.  Age and maker are unknown. Wood is gorgeous.  High enough to hold a lamp next to your couch or a chair.
