DUNCAN.....IT IS MY LAST NAME!!!

I've been wanting to reupholster a piece of furniture for a while. I wanted to find a piece that was worth being redone. I recently fell in love with Duncan Phyfe. Here is a picture of a Duncan Phyfe sofa that needed a little TLC


And here is the same sofa after Calico Corners got a hold of it

GORGEOUS!!!



So what I plan to do is purchase this one

and make it fabulous!

Did you know that Duncan Phyfe furniture is used in The Green Room in The White House? Who Knew?! I mean I know its antique and all but wow. Just a little something I learned while researching Duncan Phyfe on Wikipedia.

Sweet!

What have you reupholstered lately? Are you afraid to do it? Do you have any advice for me like Janell posted on her blog (It wasn't just for me!)? I want to hear what you have to say!

WOW...this is going to be the ultimate statement piece! What fabric are you going to use? Janell

Nice blog…. It isn't easy to choosing that perfect Living Room Sofas. It needs to be ergonomically viable and superior when it comes to comfort.

Janell,
I haven't decided on the fabric yet since this project will probably start at the end of the year! I do know that it has to be neutral in color and durable because it WILL be used! Any suggestions?

Simply Radiant!

Are we on the same wave link or what, I've been looking for something similar to this style for months now! All I know is I'd like it to be done in Slate or Charcoal. Still scared about reupholstering myself though.
