I’ve really been getting into Candice Olson’s new show, Candice Tells All, on W Network.
In this week’s episode, she designed a room, blending the homeowner’s vintage furnishings with new furnishings. Just like I would have done, she revamped a bunch of the vintage pieces to make them work with the new design concept.
My favorite makeover was the new design for this carved, wood framed sofa.
Then, while I was out and about this week scouring vintage shops for lamps, I came across this sofa…
While not quite as unique as the piece Candice made over, it does feature a lot of the same elements.
The carving work has been reserved for the claw feet only, but the exposed wood frame and curvy shape makes it a perfect candidate to receive a similar makeover.
Here’s how to get the look!
First, hire a professional to sand and spray the frame with white lacquer. Second, have the entire piece reupholstered in a punchy new woven fabric.
This sky blue fabric is almost identical to the one Candice used, but you could choose any colour that works with your décor.
What would you do? Work with the wood or paint it?
