This slip covered sofa was purchased in April 2010 from IKEA for only $399.00. I purchased it for a spare bedroom that we converted into a playroom for Daniel. Now, the sofa is heading to the cabin . Daniel's playroom activities rarely include sitting on the sofa and eventually we are going to make it his bedroom so it the sofa wasn't necessary.
I purchased 2 additional sets of Ektorp's slipcovers. One in white and one in red. To give the slipcovers a more custom look and to compliment the cabin's "rustic elegance" I purchased several yards of Wright's 1 3/8" wide Greek Key braided metallic gold machine washable trim.
In addition to the trim, I found a metallic gold self adhesive decorative motif by Conso for $9.99 each.
This chair was purchased back in the early 90's. It's been in the garage for the last year or so waiting for me to deliver it to the Goodwill.
I purchased a can of primer,black varnish and a small jar of DecoArt's Splendid Gold metallic paint.
I also purchased this Cacharel pattern fabric by Waverly at one of my favorite fabric/upholstery stores, Triad Plus for only $8.00 a yard.
Luckily, my procrastination paid off for the chair and it got a reprieve from Goodwill. Now, with a new look it will have a second life at the cabin.
