Settee: The grand finale

Remember earlier this year (like 11.8 months ago) when I snagged a little settee on Craigslist and teased you that we'd reupholster it and it was going to be awesome?  
As I am sure you can guess, it turned out to be a pain. After about five months we finally finished it and then I made the cushions, but they didn't fit quite right and the result was frumpy dumpy and I didn't really want to fix them, because I was tired of looking at that stupid brown fabric. So it sat there for months annoying me. Last week I found some sweet accent pillows and it inspired me to fix the cushions. I am so pleased with the final product:
















Just looking at it feels like Christmas morning for me. Now to furnish the rest of the room...

I love this! It looks straight out of a design blog. I should go finish my furniture projects now...

PS. Are your walls blue, too? You should submit this to houseofturquoise.com. She features reader projects and I think she would definitely post this.

Yep, just had to come by for another look.
