Then there is the satisfaction of sitting back and enjoying your own handiwork. You know what you want and how you want it done, so no one to complain too if it does not come out the way you expected. Reupholstering old furniture is also for the purpose of giving your home or office a new look without having to empty your wallet.
The good thing about reupholstering furniture, is that once you start to take the pieces apart, you’ll soon realize that it was meant to be replaced when it got worn out. All you will need are a little sewing skills, and some tools like a staple gun, screwdriver and hammer to begin with. Start with something simple like a single chair then when you have built up your confidence and knowledge, you can move on to the living room sofa. Start by shopping around for the color fabric you desire and foam if needed.
You have the choice of sewing your fabric and then pull it over the worn furniture – this would be called the slip cover method. However, most of the pictures in this article deals mainly with totally reupholstering furniture from scratch.
Take a look at the pictures in this article and you will have a great idea on how to reupholster your own furniture.
