I've been helping my client Leslie add a little color and fun to her living room. It really only took a few new fabrics, and a coffee table face lift to give the room some personality. Leslie bought this vintage Henredon coffee table off Craigslist.
I sanded the top, gave the bottom several coats of navy paint, and whitewashed and varnished the top. Here is the finished result.
I also made a couple new pillows for Leslie's living room....
Instead of piping for the edges, I sewed a 1" flat panel edge, which gives the pillows a box effect.
This round bird pillow was made from a Dwell Studio for Target cloth napkin.Last year, Leslie had a pair of the above chairs in her living room covered in this Waverly print called Chippendale Fretwork in Mineral.
Here is a peek of her new chairs and coffee table in her home.
