Chesterfield Sofa…. Curb Check!

Once upon a time… I was driving through my hood on my way to pick up Mister Bee from school and I spied this!

Blue Chesterfield

Kicked to the Curb for Bulk Trash! 

Once again… their Trash is my Treasure.

I saw tons of potential in this one!  Sorry for the poor picture.  I know I took before pictures but they have gone the way of my missing socks in the dryer… cannot find them anywhere no matter how hard I look.

The legs were damaged and the blue velvet upholstery was unfortunate but fixable…. totally fixable because the bones were great!  I sent her off the Upholsterer to get customized in some super fab indoor/outdoor material – no special reason for this other than I loved the choices in pattern and color.  The fact that the indoor/outdoor fabric is super durable is just a plus.  I also had the legs replaced, the skirt removed and the wood trim piece painted white.  If you remember from a previous post, I had to send this one back to the Upholsterer because they didn’t Chesterfield my Chesterfield and forgot the Tufting.  Unacceptable!!!!
They fixed it and I am ecstatic with the results!
