The picture is not very good - must be our misty weather - but the top is a rose motif on that velvety fabric which I think is back in vogue. The camera just does not do it justice - it's an interesting top which reflects the light and looks different under different lighting conditions.
Behind me, you see a thrifty re-purpose of an old leather couch. It was a good buy to begin with - only $300 new. It used to have arms and a back and was our downstairs family room couch. We've had it for about 10 years and it was starting to annoy us so now it is reborn as a divan for outside; the dogs like it a lot. I wonder if the wood can be covered with something or maybe even just painted. I saved the leather from the back and arms - my hope is to be able to make something with it.
