this beautiful before & after belongs to nancy of mod green pod. nancy shared her gorgeous austin home on d*s in 2007, so i was excited to see a little furniture update. nancy worked with lizzie and amanda at spruce austin to update her “junk shop” victorian sofa with mod green pod’s modern aspire print. lizzie and amanda reattached the victorian horsehair (a structural material that also acts as a natural air conditioner) and then hand-tied the original metal springs. they topped the springs with US-grown organic cotton batting (not easy to find!) and covered the final piece in cotton canvas ‘aspire’ fabric. i love that nancy tried to keep the piece (and process) as green as possible- she even blogged about the process right here. i think the final result is a sofa anyone would be lucky to have in their home. great work nancy, lizzie and amanda! want to see more of nancy’s home? click here for her sneak peek.
