It was Fate…

I’ve wanted a settee for my dining room table ever since I saw this image (which has been over a year) on Little Green Notebook

When she moved to an apartment in New York she sold it, sadly I live in Kansas City so I could not make it mine…

$350!!  I could cry…don’t you love the back

You can see the whole room here

I bought a settee about 8 years ago that I have never done anything with so I figured it would work, I’d love to show you a picture but it’s buried in my basement so I’ll try to show you later…

Skip forward to this past Thurs.  I decided to hit an estate sale in the area and wouldn’t you know it…

There it was…

S

Jenny’s Before…$50 on CL

IT’S THE SAME ONE!!!

The price was $150 and since I’d have to get it reupholstered I didn’t want to spend that much.  As I walked around the house I saw a sign that Saturday was 50% off.   I decided to wait it out and on Sat. woke up early and waited until the doors opened. 

There is was and it was going to be mine!!!!  I bee lined over to it and ripped the sticker off…$75, yes please!!

I’m thinking of this fabric for it…maybe on the front…

and possibly this for the back (it’s what I’m using for the curtains)…

I love the settee idea! I have a church pew with lots of pillows, but if I decide to change it I would do a settee. I like the fabrics you have chosen, can't wait to see it completed.

That's a gorgeous settee. Wish I could find things like that. Not that I've been looking very hard yet ;-). I like the idea of your curtain fabric on the back - will tie the room together very nicely. Good luck! Robyn
