Upholstering A Vintage Settee

Enjoy our LIVE videos where I share how I upholstered this Blue Vintage Settee

Reupholstering A Settee

Another great Craigs List treasure…. well when I got it was not so much of a treasure but as the saying goes “one woman’s trash is another woman’s TREASURE”!  And this one was to be mine…. actually Bill found this beauty for me.

The fabric I used for this project is from Canvas Etc.  This is one of their printed fabrics from the Katja Ollendorff Collection, the pattern name is Scandi.  They have several base cloths to choose from and for upholstery, I choose the M0687 which is a faux linen polyester.  The fabric is very durable and was a great material to work with.  The frame was painted with Behr Premium Plus in Rich Navy.  I absolutely love this paint and will be using again for sure.
