So, I was partaking in one of my favorite weekend past times…antiquing. I came across this sofa in great shape. It’s always fun shopping with someone with a complete different brain than your own! My brain? You guessed it…creative. My antiquing partner that day…a scientist. I’m thinking if I could just meld the two brains together it would be a pretty awesome complete brain! I’ll keep mine “as is” thank you very much. I like to envision the outcome of the piece, see the potential too, much like how I see people…I want to bring out the best!
The funny part before I reworked the new old piece…My daughters response, ” Mom, that piece is so ugly, I think my eyes will bleed!’. I applauded her moxy, now she is applauding the final piece.
The journey to me was the most exciting part to reworking the sofa. Moving to a new area, I had to do a little research on upholsterers, if you live around the Cincinnati area, Helen Smith Upholstery, by far, was an awesome experience. Her studio, like a true artists. Her work featured in many movie sets, she has such a great eye.
The journey is so much more grand when we savor the people and experiences met along the way.
