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?
