Before and After @ Brabourne Farm

Finally back from the upholsterer, this old 1820s couch has been recovered in Belgian linen - it's in the entry @ Brabourne Farm.  Such a nice change from the calico and green velvet!

  1. That belgium linen is beautiful. What a lovely transformation. Have a great sunday! Leahx

  2. Just gorgeous, Leigh! What a beautiful transformation. I love seeing "makeovers" breathing new life into old items of furniture - and the belgian linen suits it perfectly.
    I hope you don't mind me asking - but I am wondering what the (limestone?) flooring is. It looks just stunning and I am looking for similar for our (about to be renovated) kitchen/meals/family room.
    Any information would be so very much appreciated!
    Thank you (and thank you for such a gorgeous, inspirational blog!)

  3. Oh wow, it's stunning!! Love what you've gone with and your cushions compliment is perfectly x

  4. It looks lovely Leigh!

    What a difference when you choose the right fabric ... plus I'm loving your arrangement of waratahs!
    Hope your weekend has been great.

  5. Hi Leah,

    Been ages since I've called in, had real trouble leaving comments on blogs, so so frustrating.

    Love your re-upholstered bench. Just goes to show not everything has to be white. Looks lovely in your enterence hall.

    Have a wonderful week.

    Take care

  6. Your upholsterer has done a beautiful job but the piece had wonderful bones to start. I've eyed off the waratahs this week at the Tulip Festival in Bowral, I must go and get some this week, they look fabulous in your home.SP

  7. What a fabulous transformation, I love it & your gorgeous entry!!!

  8. Love the new look! Your home and gardens are nothing short of spectacular!

  9. Hi Leigh,
    Thanks a great colour, I thought I'd be scrolling down to white but I love th dark fabric. It really sets it off. But you have such gorgeous elegant taste that of course it turned out perfectly.
    Love your blog
    Cheers Fiona

  10. I think it looks ever so classy in that linen. I'm very jealous to tell the truth! Love your spacious entry.

  11. The black linen really emphasizes the sexy, swoopy lines of your antique. Sharp choice!
