Lucia in Italy proves once and for all that good bones and rich wood will always be a winner if you know how to look past a few dated details.

From Lucia:

This DIY project took just two afternoons. I took off the old trimming, the old fabric and the ugly clear plastic that covered the seat. The foam was quite good so I decided not to change it. I cut the new fabric and I stapled it with my automatic stapler. Then I bought gold pushpins and modern white trim. With the leftover fabric, I made two cushions that will perfectly match my leather couch.

Thank you Lucia!
