Victorian Before & After

Monday, August 30, 2010

It's finished!!...and I LOVE it! You may remember from July that I snagged a gorgeous Victorian Sofa that was in pretty bad shape as far as the fabric was concerned. It was filthy and smelled musty from sitting in storage buildings and garages, and was infested with spiders and other little critters on the underside. Well, I gave it a nice vacuuming to rid it of creepy crawlies and then thru a series of craigs list ads and other inquiries I found a great guy to do the re-upholstery work....and for a fraction of the cost of usual upholstery fees. If you are local (triad area of NC) and ever need upholstery work I highly recommend Jon from Jon's Custom Upholstery. Look him up on Facebook. He gave me a great price and even offered to pick up and deliver my sofa when I was unable to get it to him! He's also super quick! He picked up my sofa and had it completed w/in 48 hrs!! Whoa! That is crazy fast, especially considering the detail required of my tufted sofa with 70 buttons! The results are beautiful and I love the Ethan Allen upholstery fabric that I picked up for $3/yd!! And did I mention that Jon dated this piece to the turn of the 19th century?! Super cool! It makes a great backdrop for beautiful portraits!


  1. The makeover certainly gave this gorgeous piece a new life.

    Looks like the little darlings are enjoying it too!

  2. Oh my goodness - it turned out GORGEOUS!!!!

  3. WOW - it looks FAB!!!! I am sure it was a labor of love. Great work :D

  4. The sofa is stunning! I love it!
