I found this settee on Craigslist a few years ago and had recovered it in the black and white French Toile. It was already painted black which was the look I really liked...back then....
Well, as time went on I decided it was time to give it a makeover. Since I'm so obsessed with anything and everything any shade of white I chose to paint it in Annie Sloan's® Old White Chalk Paint.
You can see in the photo just how old this settee is. All of that is the original batting used on the seat and back support.
My goal for this settee was to make it sort of Shabby Chic looking. For the overall covering I used a drop cloth and my Grandma, a while back, had given me some pretty vintage floral ticking fabric that I absolutely loved and a bunch of vintage lace. I knew that I wanted to use these and so I did. Here is the final look of my "new" vintage settee.
What do you think of the new look? I love it! I hope you do too.
