Next Project

I’ve been getting quotes on upholstering the love of my life: this sofa. I know, it’s dog ugly right now, but I can assure you the bones are fabulous. It’s about fifty years old, the frame and springs are solid and extremely high quality. I especially love the flat arms, it’s a great napping sofa, and I’ve never seen one like it. Buying such a sofa new is well out of our price range, better yet, this one was free. I’ve had it for about fifteen years now, and I want to have it re-done. Unfortunately, the price is well out of our range, so I’m thinking about doing it myself. I’ve done some simple upholstery, chairs and the like, but I’ve never done a sofa. I’m fairly confident about everything but the tufting in the back, it’s not diamond tufting, so that’s okay, but I don’t know. We’ll see how it works out.

  1. I’m sure it will be great. I’ve only recovered the counter stools for the kitchen, and then the dining room chairs, but it was easier than I thought.

    I’m sure with a good book and/or a youtube tutorial or two, you’ll do just fine and the couch will be gorgeous.
