A Lumbar Pillow to set off the Settee

So as I have mentioned before, I have a lot of work in progress for my formal living and dining room areas, I posted a couple pictures in the formal living room that I hung on Sunday- to compliment the space and wake up the walls so to speak. I included a picture of my settee that I purchased last month. As you could see, there was not much life to the space before hand... 




Here is the settee before





I decided a lumbar pillow would be the perfect touch for this petite seat, I went to my local House of Fabrics to look for a fabric that would compliment the settee and found a Waverly pattern for 2.00 a yard. I bought 3 yards of fabric, I decided to make the lumbar and swap out the backing of the china cabinet with the same fabric.  The curtain panels are currently being made, they are a lovely shade of green.

Here is the settee with the lumbar pillow




I plan to do the backing of the china cabinet tomorrow, I hope it looks just as good as the lumbar pillow is looking on my settee. I think the space is coming together very nicely.


What do you think of the lumbar?

Mrs. Chic~ Thank you! I think that fabric was a steal and I am soo looking forward to having the entire space "finished" I am still on the prowl for the frame for my Nana's artwork and the perfect fabric for my chair.

Great deal on your fabric! I bet it felt good to make something nice for your home versus paying department store prices. Well done!

Brandi! That it did!! I'm always able to find nice deals on fabric and I am really pleased with the lumbar, it was pennies on the dollar compared to department stores.
