Cane sofa refurb update

Yesterday was a fabulous day for painting. Dry air, a slight breeze, and warm but nothing like the 39 degrees we had earlier in the week.

I am so happy with how my street-side sofa find is working out so far. I adore the vibrant blue and while I also contemplated a french grey (which I'm sure would have been beautiful and elegant), I just couldn't go past this colour.

It still needs another coat and the poor thing has had a bit of a hard life. Some of the seat spindles (are they called spindles?) are missing, and although it still feels sturdy, I'm sure it's a slippery slope once a few go.  Just to be safe, I'm going to get a piece of ply cut to the seat size, paint it to blend in, and add the seat cushions on top.

Next stop; fabric shopping!


  1. Gee, you don't waste any time Jen! It's looking lovely. Great idea to use the ply and it will be well hidden under the cushion so no one will ever know :)

  2. That colour really is amazing - can't wait to see what colours you choose for the cushions.

  3. I've nominated you for a Liebster Award! xo

  4. Ooh that looks lovely! Such fun too!!! What a beautiful space I've come across here. Off to make a cuppa and have a good potter around. Hope your Thursday is lovely :) x


Thank you for posting! You've just made my day :)
