Craigslist once again yielded fantastic results with this Mission-style couch in green! I love how the muted green color of the fabric pulls out the tones in the hand-painted hearth, the steamer trunk coffee table, and the walls in the library.
This couch replaced the hand-stenciled hide-a-bed sofa I’d made in our last place, and I was a bit sad to see it go, though I knew it didn’t fit the aesthetic here as well as the new couch. This new one is more spacious and does a great job pulling the pieces of the room together. The cushion covers all come off for washing.
The arms had some deep scratches in the finish, but they’re now mostly disguised. I used Restor-A-Finish and some wood filling markers to match the colors (three colors, to be exact, in order to match the grain appropriately). I’ve now used Restor-A-Finish on several other items, including the beautiful vintage Singer sewing machine table you see pictured here. I’d definitely recommend it so far; it even removed water stains and rings from the sewing machine table.
The couch cost $70 plus the $30 to rent a Home Depot truck to transport it in! Not bad for a perfectly matched couch with no problems whatsoever!
