{Antique} Settee Makeover

Hey guys – Well today I’m back with another ::Before & After:: post for y’all! This is really one of my favorites, so I sure hope you enjoy:)

A few months ago I found a beautiful settee at a local antique store and just had to have it! For a while now, I had been looking for a small settee for the end of our bed in our master bedroom. I knew this would work perfectly and at only $100, it was too hard to pass up. The cushion needed to be replaced {or removed} and I also had some plans to paint the piece as well. Here it is sitting in the antique store before I bought it.

I ended up not using the settee in our master bedroom like I had originally planned. It sat in there for a while, but I eventually found a new home for it. I have recently been working on making over our formal living room {this post will be coming soon} and needed more furniture for the space. As much as I loved the settee in our bedroom, I knew it would fit better in the formal living area. Below is the process of what I went through when making over the settee.

Here are a few of my ::inspirations:: for the piece:
Here is my ::before & after:: for the piece:

So what do you think?? I am still considering adding a new cushion, but that will come in time. I have brainstormed a few ideas on how I could do it myself, but we shall see… I’m also very excited to show y’all our formal living room makeover as well! More of that to come:) Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

  1. Your settee is gorgeous with all its lovely details. I really like how you’ve styled it without the cushion. What a great find. I’m happy to be a new follower and hope you’ll stop by when you get a chance. Mary Alice

    and follow back when you can!

  3. I LOVE painted cane! I dream of finding something like this one day. You did a great job. I have some cane dining room chairs I need to paint. What color paint did you use? Thanks!

  4. Thanks everyone for the sweet comments! I know I’ve gotten a few questions about the paint color but it’s actually about four different colors mixed into one. I also painted many layers of different colors as well and then sanded certain areas to have certain colors come through. I was originally going to write a step by step post, but there were far too many steps! Sorry guys!!!!
