TUFTED VINTAGE SOFA….A total score (if you ask me!)

I am super siked about this purchase I made yesterday!

Unnamed

Okay, I know that many of you may be like “what were you thinking?” But I know so many of you are just as excited as I am!   I don’t know about you, but I immediately thought about Crate and Barrel’s Azure sofa, but with a wood trim and a skirt (which will be pulled off)!

Another difference that these two sofa’s have is that one was $25! Yes, $25

Now all I need is a fabulous upholstery job and some inexpensive fabric.  The style of the sofa reminds me of the vintage chairs I purchased at Goodwill a while back

And we all know their potential

Yeah, I must say, I’m about as happy as a kid in a candy store! I can’t wait to have the sofa and chairs reupholstered.  Sadly, it probably won’t be until December when I do…

SmileSmileSmileOkay, I’ll shoot for November!SmileSmileSmile

Hey, is anyone else sad that today is the last day of Oprah? Really last week was since today is just a farewell… I hope I’m not the only one crying about this!!

I saw that couch on Twitter yesterday and you lucked out girl! That is going to be quite a masterpiece. Are you going to be at the event tonight? Afterwards, I plan on going home to cry my eyes out while I watch Oprah...

Great find, the sofa and chairs will look fabulous reupholstered. It's hard waiting, isn't it?

I'll miss Oprah too. I always knew that I could count on her "being there" at 4:00 in the afternoon if I wanted a coffee break. *sniff, sniff*

I adore that sofa, am a huge fan of the azure sofa, which I've tried to find a place for in my home before!

Oprah, hard to believe. I have watched her for probably 20 years, beginning when I lived in Chicago. She said a sentence once that has had a huge impact on my life...I should post about it!

That is a great sofa Lakeitha and those chairs!!, I would have arm wrestled you for them LOL. I've been sad ever since Oprah announced she was ending her show. Her show has been on in my house every day for 25 years. I feel like she is my sister friend. But there's OWN. I love her network and I'm sure it will get better and better.

It just does not seem right that the Oprah show will be no longer! I love those finds, I know they will look awesome!

Score is right! I can't wait to see the final project in November. I'm missing Oprah already :( The show yesterday was amazing off to OWN she goes.

What a great find!! I LOVE the sofa and chairs. They have great lines! Can't wait to see them when they are done.

It's a wonderful find! Reminds me of my tufted sofa awhile back!

Niki McNeill said...

Omg! What color are you thinking!? I love the lined and tufting... You could even keep the wood trim if you did it in a navy o crisp white. Love it!

Tia Brumbelow said...

Oh My !!!! What a fantastic find! You sure do know how to thrift and find some great stuff!
