My husband was proud to show off the job his wife had done
I loved my old sofa. It was comfortable and had gone through three kids and a husband. Although the upholstery was looking a little threadbare, it was still a place where you could relax. I told my husband I wanted to reupholster the sofa, and he told me to go ahead. I didn’t know how to reupholster anything, but I was sure I could get a lot of ideas from YouTube. I went online and spent hours watching videos on how reupholster a sofa, chair, or any other piece of furniture you wanted. The idea was always the same. Find a sturdy fabric that suited your needs, carefully size and cut the material, and sew away. You had to do fittings like you were making a bridal gown. You needed to have the right thread and pins to keep the material in place. After two weeks, I was sure I could reupholster my sofa with no trouble. I went shopping and found the upholstery material my husband and I both liked. I bought enough material so I could do the sofa and the matching loveseat. It took almost two week before the reupholstered sofa was ready to be used, but it was beautiful. My husband was proud to show off the job his wife had done. My kids were the first ones to pounce on the sofa and lay back with their feet on the arm of the loveseat. I tried swatting the feet away, but it was no good. I knew I would need to reupholster the sofa and loveseat again sometime int he future, but for now, I just looked it the amazing job I had done all by myself.
