Before & after

I bought this chaise lounge about 10 years ago at my favorite consignment shop in Milwaukee. I had my eye on it for a while and waited till it got marked down the second time. I don't remember how much I paid for it...less than $200 I'm sure. I was able to see past the ugly red Stewart plaid to the down filled cushion and the carved wooden legs. I remember hauling it home in our minivan and my daughter being terrified that someone would see us bringing it into the house. I fully intended to have it reupholstered, but in the meantime just draped it with an old Bates bedspread.

We recently had our bedroom painted and I was finally motivated to have it done. I found this great fabric at High Fashion Home and had the work done at Alief Upholstery, a local shop. I am really pleased at how it turned out, and so are Purrkins and Graycie.
