Here's the "before."
And here's the fun "after."
A better shot of the fabric. Love me some polky-dots! The webbing underneath was dry rotted, so they redid all that. And they built up the cushion so that it fit better. I'm a happy camper. Now I just have to complete the refinishing of my thrift store coffee table to go in front of it.

By the way, I found the cute round flower rug at a local store for only $35. The garden stool to the right of the love seat is something I bought at Olde Time Pottery for $10 and spray painted to match my metal garage sale cabinet.
And finally some quilting updates. The April Lollypop block is coming along nicely.
And here's a peak at a new hexie project - sorry for the blur, I think my eyes aren't ready to focus this morning.

The dangerous line of storms that's making its way across the country (causing tornadoes and some deaths) is arriving here today. Apparently the storm that came through Monday night while we were away has been confirmed to be an F1 tornado that touched down nearby. So I will hunker down today and keep a weather eye.

Julia, that ALL looks great! What a wonderful feeling that must be, to "recycle" something from your youth! :-) Stay safe today and have a great weekend!

You have done a fantastic job with that love seat! I love it! Furniture from the past has wonderful character...not like the overstuffed, padded, boring stuff they fill us with now...no more craftsmanship it seems.

Are you kidding me? That transformation is unbelieveable! I like your taste in fabric. Was it super expensive to have the sofa done?

Hi Judy, I love your polka dot couch. I love me some polka dots also. Good thing I don't live near you, we would be competing for the same garage sale, thrift store items all of the time. Have a Happy Easter. Beth
