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.
