Before & After: A Sturdy Settee Gets a Makeover for a Patio!

On the hunt for something that would fit perfectly in their covered patio area, Lauren found this interesting loveseat on Craigslist for just $30. Sturdy, it had potential, and Lauren took it home to add her own personality to it.

From Lauren:

The fellow craigslister that I scored this wonderful settee had intended to refinish it himself, however, never found the time to complete the deconstruction. He had already started to take it apart, which saved me a little time in the demolition process.

The wood on this seat was fully refinished and repaired before it was adorned with this native-inspired wooly fabric. The upper back rest was finished with a soft suede-like fabric and finished off with matching tufted buttons.

The wolf pillows are made from 100% post consumer recycled plastic bottles and the weathered leather wolf appliques were cut from recycled leather scrap. All said and done, I spent under $100 for the chair, fabric and supplies to refinish.
