Couch makeover DIY
I bought this couch for our country place a couple of years ago and the color that used to be on it had bothered me for a long time. (Brownish you can see some of it here in this last photo). Normally this couch is by our kitchen table – love having a couch next to the kitchen. Easy to go into food coma right after eating or just staying there for a long time reading the papers in the morning.
The paint I got at the Swedish artist Carl Larssons house Sundborn. It’s Beckers that have made a special paint collection with hues from his house. I don’t think you can buy them elsewhere. It’s a pity since the colors are fantastic. I never been into orange but this one I love and in his house the color is everywhere. Then I did this perfect shade of green, in between on the bars.
The seat I covered with a cotton carpet a bargain from the sales at Indiska this summer. The cushions are a mix. Two plain ones from Ikea, two from the fleamarket where I also found a old pink folk costume apron that i made into a cushion cover and a hanging woven tapestry that I also made into a cushion.
Here you can see photos from when I was at Sundborn – Carl larssons home! One of the most inspiring homes I know!

What a nice result!!! I’m a fan of this red maybe because I’m fan of Carl Larsson ‘s colors used to.
Sundborn is on my list :)
Two years ago, I read a novel (“Sundborn ou les jours lumière”) by the French author Philippe Delerm that I loved very much. I don’t know if this novel has been translated…
Absolutely beautiful and very creative!! I love the mix of colors and patterns, all of which work together so well. I wish that paint were available elsewhere, too, but I probably could take the photo to a paint shop and get a color that’s very close, if not quite a perfect match.
I enjoy all the various posts on DosFamily, such as the heartfelt political commentary a few days ago. However, it was the pictures of rad DIY projects like this that first got me hooked and have me always coming back for more!
