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.”

  11. 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.
