Sofa Look-a-like

A sweet reader from New Hampshire emailed me about helping her find a vintage sofa similar to the one I found on craigslist and had reupholstered. Loving craigslist like I do, and only looking for one thing, I figured I could leisurely look for one tonight.

Well, what do you know? I came up with 3 awesome contenders which are all bargains in my eyes. And, if she wants, she could always offer less than what they are asking!

Just a little refresher for all you lovelies out there...here's our vintage craigslist sofa makeover:



And here are the look-a-likes just waiting to be purchased!







I've got some city requests ready to go and will be bringing those to you all in the coming days. Stay tuned...and as always, if you'd like me to search your craigslist for fun finds or something specific, drop me an email at Nuestravidadulce@gmail.com! I'd love to help : )

xoxo

Wow, your couch turned out gorgeous! It's hard to believe that it was once a floral explosion. Was the reupholstery pricey?

I love love LOVE your couch makeover. Would you mind sharing how much it cost you to re-upholster it? I have some gorgeous furniture that could use some help, but I'm not sure if it's worth it.

Can you come to my house and teach me how to sew like you do??
I hand sew everything. I never learned how to use a sewing machine. I've tried, but always failed.
I just can't believe that you redid that couch! It went from looking like $100 to $3000!!
Good work!

Your sofa is incredible!!!! And I love the look-alikes.

Would it be rude of me to ask how much the overall cost of the project was?

What search terms do you use when you look for these sofas?

Hi Joi,

You have great vision! For fun, I checked out my city's search results and found a green couch identical to the gold one above. I'm on the lookout for two side chairs similar to your living room's - thanks for visiting my blog.

I love the tufted back. I go on craigslist but I must be doing something wrong. I don't like scrolling through everything. Is there a way to really narrow your search?
