What Was Around The Corner

      Well here they are, I'm so glad the other seller changed their mind! LOL 
I think these are much cuter, I love the shape and they are pretty comfy too!

The blue is pretty blue in person lol, so I hope to re-cover them someday...
right now we are busy looking for a home!

So as soon as we find one and I know where these will go, I can choose a nice fabric and take on the challenge....wish me luck! lol

This was our first attempt at upholstery, we built the wooden sofa frame out of mahogany and then had to build the sofa mattress from scratch.....YIKES! That was quite a project LOL..

We had to tie the springs twice because we had made some mistakes lol..
...Here's the finished project.

After we finally finished the sofa we swore we wouldn't do it again haha, but now here I am with these cute couches in need of new fabric! 
I'm sure it'll be a fun little adventure  :0)
