Some changes.

I have completed 4 covers for our lounge to go in the family room. Steve has also rubbed down the pine, stained it and varnished it. It has come up really well:

I want to do the back cushions again. They are just a bit too small. I measured the covers off the foam and they are about 2cm too small. I started them tonight and should finish them off tomorrow.

We also got our new pigeon pair of lounges for the lounge/dining room. Here they are:


Once I do the curtains, I will take another shot. I am really happy with our new lounges and the make over we gave our old lounge.

Hey Therese you have done an excellent job on those lounge cushions. I have a lounge set that needs re-covering when you have the time lol.

The new lounges look great too!

I always find it so satisfying to make-over an old piece of furniture.
You are very talented to redo lounge covers though!

Your sitting room looks great!

You are so clever when it comes to sewing. Wow - the sofa looks fantastic!

Great job~!!

I have always wanted to be able to sew but I found it was more difficult to do in real life.

Looking great Therese, I really don't know how you get time to do these things!
