Before the Reupholstering


The girls and I found this couch a couple of weeks ago (for the stone house, of course). It's very old, dating from the 1920s, and used to be horsehair! It has some very sturdy springs.


I started the reupholstering adventure today by taking the fabric off the bottom and back. Bottle green cotton velvet coming up.

Gorgeous, my parents had a similar style done in the softest, dark chocolate coloured velvet.

I had a sofa like that in my first apartment. It has very nice lines!

What a marvelous find! It's such a lovely shape -- reminds me a bit of the English roll-arm style, which I just love. Can't wait to see it transformed!

Cheers,
Shannon

This looks very good. I would like to do this to my furniture. Do you have any tips? Where can I go to learn how to DIY.

Thank you,
Tina

It's great that Clara is game for all these furniture adventures. It would be so hard to do it yourself.

I've been wanting to do this to a few chairs. Would you share with us your steps to reupholstering the couch? Simplified version is fine!

I'm not giving anyone advice on this project--there are plenty of internet resources far more knowledgeable than me! I just muddle through asking Clara what she thinks would be right to do next :)
