Finishing Touches


After yesterday's post, I decided that I cannot leave the couch anymore like that, so I took the time today and added the finishing touches. I went with this kind of ornamental ribbon, because I think it works quite well with the shabby chic theme. It's sweet, it's tacky, it's like a little bit too much, so it's perfect xD.

Some of you wondered, why I added the ribbon at all, the reason is: to hide the ugly spots, that were left from the hundreds of staples that were used to fix the original upholstery. When they created this couch they worked very messy. I tried to cover up some of those dents in the wood, but it wasn't enough. So that's why it needed some kind of decoration, similar to the original one.
