The French Sofa Redo!

6,519 Views
Updating an old 1800's French sofa to the 2013 version using paint, grain sacks, and drop cloths for upholstery! It retains the "frenchy" feel but in a more relaxed casual way! We invite you to come visit for a closer look!

    Absolutely gorgeous, I have an antique sofa that I plan to cover in drop cloths as well.

    Thank you Lory! I love using drop cloths for upholstery projects! I made a slipcover out of drop cloths for the cushion on this sofa and when it gets dirty, I just throw it in the washing machine! Good luck on your project!

    This really looks marvelous! I have an old settee that has a pretty good back - with lots of buttons on the seat. The color and pattern are very hard to match. I may have to keep your inspiration in mind!

    Thank you Kathy! The sides of this one was tufted, but I was too "chicken" to attempt tufting when I reupholstered it! Maybe next time!
