BEFORE AND AFTER – design indulgence

 BEFORE AND AFTER – design indulgence

Well howdy!


I have a fun “before and after” for you today.  If you follow me on Instagram then you saw my post from yesterday and y’all this is a doozy!

Get a cup of coffee cause this one is long:)

Linda called me about 2 months ago to help get her place in shape for her son’s wedding reception being held at her home.  In this day of Covid…..weddings have gotten much smaller with just family so she was going to set up a table in her sunroom.

As a busy professional woman she had not done anything to her home for a long time and this was the catalyst she needed!

The goal….since time was short….was to paint, recover furniture, new rug and 2 new chandeliers.  AND of course re-zhush!  

Let’s start with paint….instead of painting all the trim which is costly we just tried to neutralize the walls….you can see that the walls were yellowish in this picture.

And in this one they were painted out SW Shoji White.

We also decided to change out the chandeliers….

I found this one from Low Country Originals.  It was custom made and shipped from Savannah.

It’s made from copper piping which was good since we were already using a copper lamp she had.

After paint and securing the chandeliers I got to work finding enough fabric to recover the 2 sofas and 2 chairs.  That is a lot of fabric…..42 yards for the sofas alone!

Also enough yardage for the window treatments.  I wasn’t going to re-invent the wheel.  Using the same rods and rings!

Just throwing them on the poles was another whole issue.  Here is Rose “dressing” them!

But in the end they looked great!

Below is the copper lamp she already had.  I just got a different lamp shade.

And here is the fixture hung!

Below are the recovered chairs.  These were from Lee Industries….and you can see we had the back cushion made taller!

I used performance fabric on both the sofas and chairs……

The picture below was the inspiration for the colors….dark gray…and touch of chartreuse! 

The pillow fabric came from Kravet.

The rug from West Elm!

And… is the full before and after.  So much brighter!

Another thing we did was change out the wood top on the coffee table by adding a slab of marble!  That was a game changer!  

Here is a before and after shot of the same corner!

So….glad to check that box as they say!  On to other projects…..

Hope you guys have a great week…..I think the weather is supposed to get cool later in the week here so I will be glad to not be wearing a frizzy helmet on top of my head…..hee haw.
