When our kid moved out, he left the sofa he had in his basement beach house behind, and the thing was beat up, plus the upholstery was torn plus had cigarette holes throughout, however i was worried about what all the stains were, although I hated to throw it away.
The sofa itself was in enjoyable shape, although I couldn’t afford to have it reupholstered, then one of the small local sewing shops was closing, plus they were selling the material at half price.
I thought if I could get some upholstery material at a enjoyable price, I may try to reupholster the sofa on our own. I didn’t guess I could make it look any worse than it already looked. I measured the sofa plus asked if they had enough of the cloth in the store. I had to buy many full bolts of the cloth, but it cost less for the many than if I had purchased one bolt from another store. It took myself and others nearly many months to measure plus fit the cloth to the sofa, plus another many months to finish the job. I had to buy modern upholstery tacks for the arms plus along the back plus bottom of the sofa. I learn every article I could find on how to reupholster a sofaâ€¦ When I was finally finished with the reupholstering job, I took our hubby downstairs. He thought I had purchased a modern sofa, plus I told him it was what I had been working on. I asked if he could tell I did the reupholstering? He was speechless plus then said it looked appreciate a modern sofa from the furniture store, plus maybe I should take up reupholstering as a modern work.
