Friday I was doing errands in Decorah and stopped at the local thrift store. I bought this antique wicker couch for $25.
After picking up the couch I stopped at Goodwill and found fabric there to fix the cushions for $8. There were four yards which is more that I needed but the price was right so I grabbed it. Then I was off to the paint store. Three cans of spray paint and I was on my way home.
Hubby and I have a habit of not getting projects completed right away so I decided, not this time I was going to tackle this before I chickened out of the upholstery job.
Spray paint first. UGH. I need one more can but at least for now, I can see what it is going to look like. Then the upholstery process started.
I pulled the old fabric off. There were more layers there but I just took the top layer off.
What do you think?? I am in love with it. I do have to get another can of spray paint. Actually I think two. I need one to complete the painting as there was not enough paint to do the underside or the back side of the back. I want to have an extra can in case there are some nicks in the paint. All in all I am totally happy.
I think Gracie is happy too. Total cost of project…. $45 so far…$8 more is expected for the additional paint. All in all I think it was a good buy. This is one of my favorite…junk to fabulous projects that I have done to date.
