COUCH MAKEOVER

My mum has this hobby of collecting antique and second hand furniture with the view to revive it. One of these pieces she had sitting around was a wicker outdoor setting that has definitely been 'pre-loved'. A double and two single seated set. It was kind of in bad shape - sun damaged wicker and the fabric was a little dodgy to say the least!

I had this grand idea to do it up for Salem's baby shower. Time kind of ran away from me though and it wasn't till the Thursday before the shower that it really got started! Call me crazy, but a vision is a vision, and I wasn't going to drop it without giving it a good go! Eden (another of my sisters) painted the frames white and my job was the sewing/re-upholstery part. 

I ran out of fabric and time in the end, so I only just the double seat was done in time. But I did whip up a couple of pair cushions to match. I think it's going to look great when it's all completed.

Now that I've told you I'm going to finish it, there is no way off the hook now...you'll have to keep me accountable!!
