Well I am back wasn't gone long got to squeeze in more of my crafts this week. I am going to give you all before and after pictures warning watching all my pictures of my before and after may get you to be more crafty lol. :)
Well I have been gone Craigslist crazy lately. I never thought to use Craigslist until one of the girls in my class was telling me about things she got off of Craigslist. I was like girl you better watch yourself. Because a couple months ago there was some crazy man on Craigslist meeting women and killing them but, she let me know when she go pick up the things she buy she makes sure not to go alone. So I applaue her for that right there.
I been wanting to start on my living room to get me a living room set but, I wasn't trying to spend 500.00 dollars or more just on a couch and chair. So after searching Craigslist list I found a great size couch and chair and the owner just wanted 35.00 dollars for it. YEP that's right 35.00 dollars incase you didn't get that the first time lol. I was like what the hack. I was like what could be wrong with this couch and chair. So I email her and went on ahead taking my sister and friend with me just incase. We seen the set and it wasn't much wrong with it just needed to be cleaned and plus her family moved out the house and didn't want to take it with them. So I got it and was like ok I can do something with this. I am a sewer so I can put in my little touches into this couch.
So here go the before picture. I didn't take the pictures I got the couch and chair and go working on it before I took the before pictures so I email the owner asking her if she can send me the pics that she had on Craigslist.
After Chair again
After Couch again
If you look close you can see that the couch and chair seating pillows are a tan. I changed those as well.
This fabric is on the back of couch and chair. Cute huh
Also I have this same fabric at the bottom of the couch and chair as well.
Cute button aint it. I took all the buttons off the couch and chair and cover it with the fabric and resewn it back onto the couch and chair.
My fingers are now tired and hurting. I did all this by sewing with a big eye knead and with embroderying thread. That was some work there but, the after pictures paid off.
I had so many pillows from when I had my old living room set that I kept. I decided to take some of my pillows and cover them with the fabric so it can go with the couch and chair.
See the before pillow
I also cover up pillows with that tan fabric.
I am also doing more for my new/used couch and chair. I am going to make some armrest with some tan fabric for the armrest of the couch and chair. I also want to cover up more pillows with fabric.
Iam also working on some crochet things to add to my set. Here below is the start of some mini pillows that is a fan design.
Cute so far. I need to block this. I have more work to do with this one. I want to do 2 pillows in this fan design.
I also want to take that same design and make a throw using the colors that I have in the fabrics. Tan, brown, cream and blue. So that can be something you can toss on the couch. :)
So what you all think. My mom came by and see what I did now she want me to fix up her couch oh by the way she also got her a new/used couch great deal as well. :)
Thanks for looking. Hope everyone have a great weekend. My weekend is to start cutting out fabric to try to get started on a outfit for Nesa her bday is Wednesday and I wanted her to wear something nice on her bday. I am having her a bday BBQ party at my house Friday the 12th and she can't wait.
