What I’m Working On…| Early 1900’s Eastlake Style Settee

March 9, 2015 by Terry

This week I will be sharing bits and pieces of a project I have been working on.  It is a beautiful Eastlake Style settee and it is going to be so lovely when it is finished.  I am so excited about this project.  I have never done a settee before but have always wanted to.

Here is how it looked when it came to me…

    I just had the pleasure of finding you website and….yes I fell in love with the settee. What character and such good bones. I know there are springs hanging out from underneath, but what a beauty she is. I can wait to see what you do with it.

Thoughts on this table??? Creating a beautiful rustic outdoor dining area... this entire table is salvaged wood. The base found separately from the top and joined together to form this unique outdoor living space. Along with the chandelier we added in some beautiful patio lights on the beams creating a dreamy setting for a lovely summer evening outside.  Playing along with @prodigalpieces today #trashure #thecuratorscollection #design #outdoorliving #patio #rustic #reclaimedwood FATTABULOUS time spent today with Angie of @absolutecustomdesigns helping with a FAT PAINT workshop.
