Reupholstering Plans

Do you make plans or do you make decisions on instinct?
Rarely do I have a plan. (Does it show, much?)

However, the minute I saw this sofa, I had a plan:  I'd  live with this lovely blue until I could gather all the materials to reupholster her...Um, and maybe learn how to upholster?!

Nancy posted this on Marcus Design...Love the two fabrics and the contrasting piping  A Golden Touch, for sure.  
The Golden Touch

One year later, what is that I see?  Quite possibly a plan coming together!  

I'm off to learn how to upholster :)...yikes!


  1. OMG, I have been looking for a sofa just like that, where did you find it??? Lucky girl! Be a fast learner so we can see the finished product SOON!

  2. *OH* Thank you for the encouragement, Lisa!
    I found the sofa at our local thrift store (a year ago already - Yikes again!) and
    just happened to have my folks' suburban to haul it home.
    Thank goodness for all those who donate to fuel our furniture obsessions - and
    for parents with big cars :)
    Have a great day!

  3. I actually love that blue. The sofa is so pretty! Did you see a post Mr Goodwill did the other day on a thrift sofa? He was showing how to beef it up without reupholstering. Of course, if you can master that art, it'd be great.


Would love to hear from you...!
