Lynn tells us that everyone thought she was crazy to purchase this gold velvet sofa. Lucky for her (and us!) she could see a diamond in the rough.
First we cleaned up the arms, all is took was a little elbow grease and some touch up paint and the wood and resin arms look fantastic. Next, upholstery....I decided to use a hardy linen-looking cotton blend in oatmeal. A busy fabric would take away from the overall elegance of the arms and the lines of the sofa! I updated the stitching to tufting, to enhance the sophisticated look. All of the foam was replaced with earth friendly, long-lasting fill. And of course, we named the sofa Jocelyn, after the beautiful lady who sold it to me!

Thank you Lynn!
