Elephant Affront

Elephant Affront
Not one to ever shy away from anything bright and bold, Shannon went as bold as it gets when she recovered this antique sofa with purple velvet!   I suppose it would have been a bold choice to keep it as it was … but only in the sense that your friends would come over and say “Oh my!  You have a faded and saggy elephant-print sofa!  That is so … um … bold.”
See more from Shannon on her blog Compartment Life.

    Honestly, other than the sagginess in the seat – and who of us can’t be accused of a little of that – I really like the before. I actually prefer it.
