Diamond Tufted Bench

This is the next project to come.  I have stripped off (both layers of) the old upholstery.  Red velvet on top (yuck) and ancient brocade under.  The legs are a disaster and have to be finished in some way.  I envision a distressed rusty red for the very beautiful medallion print velvet I have for the upholstery.

Here is the very inauspicious beginning.


Believe it or not, there was actually a layer of dry-rotted foam rubber under that sad brocade upholstery.  Stay tuned.  This one is going to look so much better.

Well I went a different direction entirely, painting the legs terra cotta and upholstering in a handwriting embellished linen with tufting.
