Sofa Makeover

Once I won a shabby, not so chick Petite Princess curved sofa. It was very cheep- So I was happy to strip the pieces of the plastic structure and...... forget about it for a while.
But I saw the magnificent minis by Mid Century designer Paul MacAlister on this wonderful blog :
http//  .It gave me an idea just how I could give this sofa a makeover.
I quite like the result. I hope you do too.Does it resemble fabric?


  1. This looks great. I have one of these in poor condition that I was going to attempt to recover. So did you just paint it?

  2. I painted it with a primer to get rid of the dark plastic , then with cream colored acrilic( two coats ) and then played around the fabric texture with black,gold and ocre brown tones. The black on top is a sponge layer.

  3. Thanks. I might try that. I was just going to wrap fabric around it.

  4. The sofa looks very effective. Great idea Neomi

  5. Neomi!! Wow! The sofa looks incredible. I have one too that is collecting dust, but you've inspired me to fix it up. It really looks great. The black sponge cushions look fantastic too, great job! :D
