Sofa and table

Last week I was reading a book about interiors by Rachel Ashwell. And I wanted to make some furniture in that style. So I have searched my kits (I have a lot waiting for me to make them :-) ) and found this Queen Anne settee and a Hepplewhite Serpentine table. With some painting and sanding it a little it looks different doesn´t it? 


I also made a lavender in a basket, some books (these were the ones I meant Susanne) and cushions to dress the sofa. The tiny buttons are made out of those plastic clips that are on a bag of bread. I punched them out and made two holes in them with a needle. 




The last picture is one of the pictures I took during the day, but the sun was shining very bright. I placed it because you can see the colours better.


My thirties house is still waiting and sometimes I´m doing little things for it. I will start working on it again next week. Have a nice sunday!

  1. Great work, Lara! The sofa is very sweet, so are the lavender in the basket. I make it just the same way, I guess, same materials. The book-printies, I sent you, will be very fine made like the one you have showed here. I have to make the books with real pages too some time. (please notice on the prints, that the front of the books defines the size along with how thick, you want it. There will be extra material, you can cut off on the backside of the book)
    Love, Susanne

  4. It looks great! It's amazing how different you can make these kits look from the pictured result. With a little imagination you can do so many different things. I love it!

  6. It's so pretty Lara, a much more appealing piece than it was originally. And all the little accessories compliment it beautifully.

  11. Al sofá le has dado un cambio precioso. La tapiceria está muy bien hecha y los almohadones perfectos. La mesa muy bien pintada y los complementos de la lavanda ideal.

  18. Te ha quedado un rinconcito muy coqueton. El cestillo de la lavanda y los libros me encantan. Los almohadones te han quedado muy mullidos
