Anyway, like I always do when I have been seriously lazy, I started to feel like a loser and decided I needed to do something productive AND ambitious.
So a couple of months ago I was in Heber and found this couch at the Catholic thrift store that I LOVED. I was not in love with the fabric, but it was the shape of the couch that won my heart. Plus it was in great shape and only $30.
I convinced Steve to let me take it home so I could reupholster it. If any of my old roommates are reading this they are probably laughing. I tried to reupholster a couch before and NEVER finished it. The back of it I just couldn't figure out, so it was one of those couches that had to be up against a wall.
Anyway this time I got a little education about the subject under my belt. Not much, okay only about an hour. I went to a free Q&A class a month ago at Home Fabrics. So I have a little know-how, and the rest I will just figure out.
Saturday I decided to finally start this huge project. I bought the fabric and the tools and started to deconstruct that couch. Not even a quarter of the way done of just taking off the original fabric. I will probably be working on this sucker for the next few months.
Here is the before picture:
Potential, right? I hope so, because I am about to invest the next two months of my life to this thing.
