I happened to be browsing my local online classifieds when someone posted a FREE sectional. FREE!!! The only problem is it was made of this pleather that was ripped and peeling but I decided I wanted it anyway.
My husband was on shift at the fire station, when I called him and said "don't be mad."
"What did you do?"
"I got us a new couch...for FREE. But I have to reupholster it."
"Do you even know how to reupholster a couch?"
"No, but I will. How hard can it be?"
My ever-patient husband responded without even a hint of hesitation that he believed in me and was sure I would do a good job at anything I put my mind to. "If this is really what you want to do, I fully support you. Just let me know what help you need from me," he told me. *Swoon* He loves me.
The next day we rented a small U-Haul and picked up the couch. I was committed. Click the links below to see how I did it.
STEP ONE: CHOOSE THE FABRIC
STEP TWO: CUT APART YOUR SOFA
