Furniture Friday: Upholstered Love Seat

When my parents got married, someone gave them this love seat/cedar chest as a wedding gift.  It had some pretty awesome 70s fabric on it then.

I remember it most, though, covered with a royal blue velvety fabric.  It was so soft!

(Sadly, we don't have any pictures of the blue velvety fabric covered love seat...but it was wonderful!)

You know how I LOVE cedar chests, so I was delighted when a few years after we were married, my husband and I inherited the blue love seat.  But...we like more beach-y colors, so I covered it with white canvas.  (It was actually called sail-cloth!)

Now, we are getting ready to move again and I can't decide what to do with it.  I like the white, but when I was recovering it, I mistakenly put the fabric grain on the top going left to right, and on the seat deck going top to bottom.  You can't really see it, but I'm thinking a new color fabric might be fun!  I also can't decide what to do with the wood.

Keep it dark wood?  Or white wash it?  Or what about liming it?

 What do you think?

  1. If I remember correctly, that chest was a wedding present from your Eastman grandparents. Your mom put the blue fabric on it to match the blue carpet in our living room in Bartlesville.
