Hello everyone! I hope you all had a beautiful Thanksgiving! I can hardly believe it is December, I’m still enjoying Thanksgiving thoughts and smells, and then, BOOM, it’s time to think about Christmas! It’s a bit jarring, is it not?
After I posted the above photo on my Instagram, I got a few questions and emails about it, so I thought I would tell you all about my table decor, flower arranging, and my favorite recipes from this year’s dinner. Even though Thanksgiving is over, these are definitely ideas you can use for your Christmas dinner, plus it’s nice to tuck away inspiration for next year.
But I called the experts (Little Jack Horner’s if you live in the DFW area), and they fixed my mess and gave my settees the beautiful grey wash finish I was dreaming of.
Then came the difficult decision of the upholstery. (see this post) The world was my oyster, and I was having a hard time narrowing down ideas and finding the perfect fabric. For several months, the settees looked like the image below, with patterns rotating in and out.
I thought I had decided, and there were roadblocks so I started again. I knew I wanted a wide stripe down the middle of the front (tons of great inspiration here!), and something striking on the back. Well, the upholsterer brought them back last week, and my jaw dropped. Finally, nearly a year after purchasing them (oy vey), my settees are here, sitting in my living room, in all their makeover glory.
