A Settee & Steroids

This settee before & after is a long time coming. I purchased it about a year ago not knowing what to do with it. Here is the before:



And here is the after:





It sits at the end of our bed in our master bedroom. I love how it turned out! It got a fresh coat of white paint and I used two different fabrics... the green/blue is the same color that is in the skirted bedside table fabric.



I am a sucker for details.. I had my upholsterer double welt the settee in the contrasting seat fabric.

I'm very happy with the settee, but I'm pretty sad today. Charlotte seems to have hurt her back again (read all about the first time here). She's on some serious medication, including steroids. It makes her act completely high and not herself, not to mention she's in a lot of pain. I'm praying she gets better.. because I don't even want to think about the alternative. She is everything to us.. please pray for her!



A very sad dog. :(

  2. Oh, no! Poor Charlotte! Hope she returns to her old self quickly!

    And your settee is beyond gorgeous, Bryn. What a genius detail, the double welt. It makes such a unique statement.

  3. My moms dog just had an accident, they spent almost a grand to bring him back home so indeed when we love our pets we will do anything for them.


    I wish Charlotte a fast recovery.


    I love maminals.

  13. I am so sorry to hear about Charlotte's injury, praying for a speedy & full recovery. We have one dog and two cats and I know how special of a place our animals have in our lives, so I feel your pain.


    The settee came out great, I love the two colors. That long pillow is also amazing! I am just curious: Did you paint it yourself or was that done by the upholsterer/another professional? I have a sofa I want to have re-upholstered and I don't know whether I should paint the woodwork myself or leave it to a pro.

  14. Beautiful! The cream looks great against your wood bed! I'm also loving the blue dresser in the background... it looks like you kept the original drawer pulls? New pulls are always fun, but I like the contrast of vintage with new paint.

  15. First of all, I hope Charlotte feels better soon. She looks very sweet (and sad in that photo). The settee looks amazing. I love a loveseat or couch at the end of the bed rather than a bench.

    Wow, I really like the contrasting colors and textures. I wouldn't have though of it, but it looks great!

    Hope your pup is better soon - so sad and scary when our pets are hurting :(

  21. The settee is absolutely gorgeous. I'm thinking good thoughts about Charlotte - hopefully it's just a temporary thing. Austin sends his regards, too. Tell Charlotte to get better so Austin can come visit him :)

  22. Love the settee, sorry to hear about Charlotte. So sad...hoping for a quick recovery!

  23. I will definitely say some prayers for you guys and for Charlotte. There is sort of nothing worse than having a sick pet. I have been there, and just thinking about what we and our kitty went through is really upsetting.

    I will also pray that I can have a settee just like that, because that, my dear, is the loveliest thing I have seen in a long time. The upholstery, the pillow, the colors, the size and shape, everything. OMG. Lucky!!

  26. My heart goes out for Charlotte - it's SO hard to see pets in pain. I'm sending good thoughts her (and your!) way, and praying for a quick recovery.

    On another note, the settee turned out gorgeous - love the double welt detail & the single lumbar pillow!

  35. Thinking about you and Charlotte. It's the hardest part about being a dog owner - the short life time they're with us. Thanks for keeping up your blog and bring a little bit of beauty to my day!

  36. Praying for Charlotte!

    The settee looks beautiful, Bryn. Where did you snag that gorgeous long lumbar pillow; I'm looking for one myself!

  37. Hope your poochee is doing better.  Love love love the seteee. Posting it to Pinterest on my "Dreamy Decor" board.  I would have fabrics like that all over my house if I didn't have four feline friends who are always leaving messes on my upholstery.  The things we give up for our loveable pets, huh?

  38.  This is sooo beautiful! I think I need to find an upholsterer! Especially one that knows how to do double welt.
