Vintage Series #1

Hello Lovelies!

Hope you are all well! Here is the first post in my new Vintage Series! This post is on how to transform a dreary sofa-vintage style! See before and after pictures!
I purchased two floral pictures from ebay! I love retro floral pictures, they transform any wall. Each picture was under £15 inc postage. Next I had a white throw from my parents house, so it was free! I placed that on the back of the sofa to add another dimension. I had two grey cushions that I purchased from Ikea which were £6.99 each inc the insert, a polkadot pink cushion from ikea that was £4.99 and a cushion made out of some left over cath kidston fabric. Finally my gorgeous vintage cushions! The light fabric from a vintage fair £3 with floral pink flowers was made into a cushion. The quilted floral pink toned cushion was bought from a vintage shop £12, the fabric is from an old dressing gown! Lastly a small delightful cushion made from french linen, a small square of vintage fabric 0.50p! applied to the centre of the cushion and finished off with vintage lace trim from a vintage fair!

Its so simple to transform an area of your room, mixing old and new. Think outside the box and explore vintage fairs as they are cheaper then charity shops!

What do you think?
