January 7, 2011. Kearns, Utah. I am quite pleased with the results. (the sofa is still waiting to receive a bullion skirt...however, I couldn't wait to share these pics) In summary, First I had the wood finish on the sofa and (2) chairs painted by a local artist, to look like glazed maple. Second, I had the sofa recovered in Mohair (ahhhh), with (2) overstuffed bench cushions (rather than 3), and removed the diamond tufting. Thirdly, I had the (2) chairs recovered in a distressed palomino leather with a high-quality (Ralph Lauren) faux zebra hide on the outside back. Seeing the finished product actually gives me goosebumps.
