Update on the reupholstering of the Couch Carcass

The couch continues to hang around in our computer room in a state of disarray.  I have the fabric almost completely removed.  You would not believe the number of staples holding your couch together.  It is kind of strange really how little sewing is actually done on the couch.  All of the peeled-off pieces are sitting on the seat, and this is how it looks:

Scary, right?  I am really fascinated and surprised by the construction.  It is a lot of work, I’ll tell you that.  But if I can get it to turn out halfway decent I might have found an additional hobby.  I’ve already found myself eyeballing various furnishings as I drive by garage sales or on the side of the road.  Yipes!

    It certainly is scary to think that it’s all staples! My Nanna used to make curtains and slip covers, etc (professionally) so I assumed everything was beautifully sewn!

    OMG. When you said it was a carcass the other day, and I laughed, I had NO IDEA. The poor couch. And I remember that couch when you bought it.

  3. I used to have a couch just like that. You sure are brave! Good luck with this, I hope it turns out well for you. I have never reupholstered but have made slipcovers.
