Vampiric Sofa Makeover

Shannon's friend gave her an antique, Queen Anne style sofa. The fabric was faded, its decorative legs were scratched and its seat was sagging. A lesser intrepid soul might have opted to pass on a makeover, but Shannon decided to invest the cash it would take for a pro to reupholster it. She chose a bold, purple velvet fabric and black paint for the wood elements. The combo has a certain vampiric flare. Check out the lowly sofa now.

Note how the elimination of the cording adds to the new look. Marvelous!
