After much deconstructing, button-making, tuft-tying, fabric-stapling, trim-gluing, tack-hammering and cushion-sewing, the tufted farmhouse sofa is finally done!!

I feel like some confetti should’ve fallen from the sky when Kriste and I put the final cushion in place.  It didn’t, but it should have.  This sofa has been the most challenging and high-maintenance piece of upholstery I have taken on to date,  but it is done and I finally get to show it off.

There it is, all styled and pretty.

And here it is without any pillows or props…

Kriste and I were “oohing” as we were proofing the pictures.  It’s just such a pretty tufted farmhouse sofa!

Here is how it looked when it came into my possession.  It was given to me last year after the Lucketts Spring Market for free.  Eddie, a photographer and fellow vendor, didn’t sell it, but really wanted to get rid of it, so she gave it to me.

It’s hard to turn down a free sofa, even though I knew it would be a challenge.

A few people have asked if I’m selling this tufted farmhouse sofa…  After such a labor, I need to keep it for a while and love on it.  I’m sure I’ll sell it at some point.

But not today.  

In other news, we’re installing the built-ins in my mom & dad’s room tomorrow!
