I have this bolt of green velvet fabric that's been propped up in the corner of my guest room/sewing room/office forever.  At first I was going to use it to cover a chair, then it sounded even better to use it on a pair of benches, and now I'm saving it for the seat of a day bed.   

Let's face it, I'm emotionally attached to a bolt of green velvet.  
Here's my bolt.  Isn't it the perfect green?

This is my Pinterest inspiration for the day bed.  I actually have a pair of Chinoiserie twin bed footboards that I'm going to join to create the day bed.


There's not nearly enough fabric to do a full-sized sofa but here are some of my favorite velvets.

  1. Green is my favorite color, and that velvet is perfect.

    1. I'm with ya, Ron. Velvet, and especially green velvet, is extra perfect this time of year.

  2. We re-upholstered our sofas, cutting down the large one to make a set of love seats in green velvet!
    We absolutely love them!
