Old sofa … another project with surprise !

Hola !

Before Xmass I`ve been asked to ” recover” this sofa . Thought straight recovery with some attention to the seat ( thought I would probably have to rebuild the seat as it was looking suspicious ) ..

This is how it looks when it arrived :

sofa for reupholstery

Not a big deal ! Kinda nice sofa but something was wrong with it …

Sofa - reupholstery project - sprung seat

Just to say – took me whole day to strip it down from old fabric ! Amount of staples used on this sofa ..something around zillion !!

Anyway , i didn`t gave up .. not even when I discovered previous fabric underneath the gray fabric  ( hate when upholsterers put new fabric over the old one !! ( yes it happens very often !!! )

And the slow process of “giving this sofa new lease of life has started ”

And finally this is how it looks after few days of work ! Fully re-upholstered in traditional way.  Now finally you can see the nice shapes of the sofa and it looks like it should ! ( not my favorite fabric though! :))

Tadammm:  :)

So next time before you gonna  think of getting rid of  such a sofa  please get in touch with me first and we can give your sofa a new look – and also the long lease of new life !!!!!

    I have a two seater and three seater leather sofas, we are thinking of changing the colour from cream to a wine colour in leather can you do that and how much would we be looking at?
