    Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. What is funny, is that you kindly left this post for me to read, and when I got over here I laughed because I remembered that I had read this post and looked at every picture of your Paris trip and felt as if I went with you! The pictures were awesome.

    I thought I had left a comment on how beautiful your couch turned out, maybe I left it on a more recent post. That couch is stunning! Thanks for taking me along to Paris πŸ™‚ I enjoyed your pictures immensely.

    Hi! I'm stopping by from CSI. Your sofa is INCREDIBLE! I'm absolutely drooling over it. I think I would have passed on remaking the sofa based on the before photo, but I'm so glad that you had the vision to see what she could become because she is gorgeous!!

    love it. i have a slightly smaller version of this sofa w/o the tufting. i found it at the goodwill for $20.
    i would love to get it refinished in some provencial fabric. what was the (round about) price for your upholsterey job?
    thanks for the tips.
    hopefully i can get it done this year.

    Julie, I love it! I have one pretty much just like it. It's not refinished though. I'm just curious as to what type of fabric you used to reupholster it with. Thanks, Gail

      Our upholsterer charged around $350 for this one, but average range could go up to $600 for a job this size.
