Furniture Thrifting Friday- French Loveseat

Because I love finding antique and vintage furniture to makeover, I decided to designate Friday as the day to share my awesome finds.  You know how children get so excited when that receive a new toy?  Well that is how I feel when I find a piece of antique furniture.  

Today I am sharing the little antique french loveseat I found on Craigslist this week for $100.  I have been searching Craigslist for a very long time to find a smaller scale loveseat that I can reupholster to fit our multipurpose office space, for some extra seating.   This will be the first larger scale upholstery project that Mr. Wilson and I will take on, and frankly I am a little frightened!

You can see in the photos that the frame of the loveseat is really in excellent shape and really doesn’t need anything done to it, so we may consider leaving it natural and unpainted.

The cushions and fabric however, look like someone spilled a pot of coffee on it, or a cat peed on it.  Im hoping its not the latter of the two scenarios!

I have ordered a few fabric samples and will let you know when they come in so you can help me select the perfect fabric.  I really want to do something fun with this piece since it will be in our creative office space.  Maybe something like this Navy Polka Dot Alston Loveseat from PBteen?
