Cane Couch Find

I came across this caned couch and chair at my local thrift store the other day. I looked at the price and it was too good to be true! I was so excited I bought it asap. I reupholstered my couch awhile back and didn't think twice about it before buying this fixer upper. I seemed to have forgotten that I am a horrible seamstress. For my own personal couch cushions I had my lovely sister in law sew the cushion covers.

It looks like I will be trying my hand at sewing once again, wish me luck!

My husband called this my "worst" purchase yet, he of little faith. I took it as a challenge. I have the set all painted, the arm is reattached, new foam for the cushions, and fabric just got delivered to my home yesterday.

Check back in the next week and see what I make out of this fixer upper.


  1. I love them and I can't wait to see how they turn out. Silly husbands, they just don't get it sometimes.

  2. It's a beautiful set and I think you'll bring it back to life wonderfully! Hugs, Leena
