DIY: A 1960's Couch Reupholstery Project
This post has been a long time coming. And I mean a long time. After recently moving to Toronto, I realized.... I really needed something to sit on. Milk crates and the floor were just not going to cut it. But I wasn't about to take on any hand-me-down or ugly thrift store couch. Then I'd probably have it for years and it would sit in my living room and I would silently loathe it every time I saw it.
I knew I wanted something modern, chic, something that would last me a long time and that would also be really versatile. So I started a project. I decided I wanted to reupholster a couch. Wooooow easier said than done, let me tell you. I'd be totally lying if I said I did it on my own too - I definitely got copious amounts of help from my mom and my neighbour. Check out these pictures of the transformation...
So glad to finally be done, but there's alway another project I have on my to-do list. Next: DIY wooden stump table? Maybe some pillow cushion covers for the new couch (argh, sewing!) Also my Etsy shop is still in the works so I'm working on that steadily. Excited about it! Thanks for reading!
