Before and After: A Sad, Sad Daybed, Rescued!

One Living Etc reader had been looking for daybeds by Ercol, a British furniture manufacturer known for its bentwood designs, for ages and finally bought this one off of eBay for a good price. But it required a bit of work. She "sanded it all down, oiled it, replaced the webbing which had crumbled to dust." And it needed a cushion! So she embarked on her first upholstery project and also made throw pillows to go on top. You'll be wowed when you see the finished project, so

.

Doesn't it look great!? The shape of the daybed really is beautiful, and I'm so glad that she rescued it. I love the mixture of pattern pillows, too.

glowingmoon - i feel the same. the furniture piece is great though! :)i think with the shape of it and the brown colour of the wood, they've gone for a retro male 70's feel with the accessories. Especially by using that olive green colour.i love reading before and after features on here and on design sponge, but i'm so jealous people manage to pick up these piece on places like ebay or junk shops of where ever! we don't have this "craigslist" in the uk but i'm imagining it's sort of like a gumtree? when i get my house, i'm going to have to turn into a scavenger to even get a glimpse of an opportunity to do stuff up!

Nice piece of furniture. I'm not crazy about how it's accessorized, but I like the piece.
