Description


My niece found this great old couch at a sale. It was in sad shape. Her Mom (my sister) and I recovered the couch and she has it in a special place in her home today. It was a fun project that took about 8 hours to complete. We removed the old covering to find a firm, horse hair seat. We used the old fabric as our pattern and several boxes of decorative tacks, staples and minimal sewing to complete this project.

Ooooh! This makes me want to put on one of my bustle dresses and have a seat on this pretty couch!

I love looking through antique shops, and I always daydream about purchasing one of these beauties and giving it a little facelift. What a lovely job!

Cfgriffith I usually start of with a knot in my stomach, when I take on a project like this. It was special and important to my niece. I kept reminding myself, someone else recovered it, and if they can do it, then I should be able to do it. Thanks for your kind words! Cindy

Wow! Upholstery sounds difficult, but worth it if you're rescuing a special piece of furniture.
