Gorgeous in Gold

I can't believe I have had time to blog so much recently. You may remember from my post on Thursday that I had mentioned gold dipping my ottoman legs to match the plant stand.  Well, I am sharing it today. You can see my new sofa in the background. I love it! It came with the pillows you see on it. They are really nice pillows, but I do plan to make some new covers for them sometime soon.  Anywho, my little ottoman is sitting in front of the sofa. It doubles as a coffee table. 

You may remember it from this post last year. I liked it still, but I wanted a pop of color in the living room since I have so many neutrals in there. All I did was pad and tuft the top and paint the legs gold.

I love this fabric. It has a gold metallic floral design on pretty!

I covered the buttons in the same fabric. I have never covered buttons before and was amazed at how easy it was! The tufting part wasn't so easy though! It wasn't that difficult really, just time consuming.

Taping off the legs and spraying them gold was a cinch! I am still loving my jute chevron rug!

And here is a view from the sofa. If you didn't get a chance to read my created entry post, click here. The hubby and I still can't believe the transformation in our home. I love it more every day....Sadie does too!

This post was short and sweet, but come back tomorrow and read my blog tour post. And if you missed my kindergarten classroom yesterday and want to check it out, click here to see it! 
Wishing you a blessed and beautiful week ahead!

Until next time.....


  1. Love the great color the ottoman adds to your room. Everything has tied together beautifully!

  2. Oh Vicky! It's just beautiful! You have done a terrific job, and your sweet dog is enjoying the new as well. :)
    I went over to see your classroom, WOW!! I would love to be young again and have you as a teacher. You sure did work hard, my my. Those sweet kiddo's are blessed to have you as their teacher.
    have a beautiful Lord's day.
    Joy! Debbie

  3. Love it all! I want that sofa!! It's what I'm looking for! Just love the pops of color! You and your hubby have done an amazing job with your make over!

  4. Very classy those gold-dipped legs. Put up a before and after of the room so we can see the big difference. You and Joey did a wonderful job.

  5. Hello Vicky!

    I am just amazed at all you have been doing in your home. Everything looks terrific! I haven't been by in what seems like forever, but from reading and catching up with all your posts, you have been busy and it shows. I love it all! I wish I could take a physical tour of your home. :) I just can't get enough of all your re-do and fix them ups you have done. I still need something to re-do around here.... Hmm...

    I have been so sick for so long, that I have lost my mojo to get things done around here. In time, I'm sure I'll get my energy back. :)

    Until then.... Have a wonderful day!


  6. Wow, it's looking great Vicky! I'm off to check out your classroom now :o)


  7. The renovation looks amazing Vicky. I am so excited for you. I love the ottoman. Can't believe how beautiful the fabric is and you did a great job on the tufting. I've never tried anything like that but it add a bit of sophistication to it.

  8. Love how that looks! I'm just a bit obsessive about turquoise and this fabric is gorgeous.

  9. You must be an awesome teacher Vicky!

    Love the gold dipped legs on that chair. Tres chic!

  10. It's so pretty, Vicky! The fabric is just awesome! Oh and I like your entryway area. Good idea to create a space. Everything is coming together nicely. Looking forward to your blog land tour!

  11. Oh my goodness, this is fabulous!! Every time I see something you do I think it's my new favorite from you. . .well, this is being added to my favorites by you :) You are amazing, Vicky!

    Hugs to you!

  12. I am in love with your gold dipped legs! You did an amazing job on that ottoman as tufting is not an easy task! Love the view!!
