This Victorian needs a facelift!
|It is in perfect condition, except for the pink velvet!|
I was pondering whether to recover this myself...read up online, watched some You Tube videos, bought a comprehensive textbook. And.....
|This fabric looks like a great abstract painting!|
|This paint does it all!|
|Using my cool collage app|

I then started taking off the gimp or trim or welting or whatever you are suppossed to call it. I need to review my upholstery vocab list again!
FYI, there is a lot more to this than buying the fabric and digging out the staple gun. I really enjoy the creative part of buying the fabric and picking the paint. I love, love, love the painting part. I even love the studying part....it is the execution part that scares me.
This is a great sturdy sofa and this fabric is not to be found again as I bought all they had at a funky little fabric shop. No, of course they cannot order more.
What am I afraid of? The welting? a little, the springs? yes, but more than all that, it is the BUTTONS!
The next step may be to get some prices...
