It's already a scorcher here in North Texas.
Have I mentioned that I really don't like summer time?
Well in case you missed it-I don't.
What I do like is getting myself into as many DIY projects as possible at one time! Yeah.
The doozy has been this vintage sofa that I so crazily took upon myself to recover.
I talked about it here in this post:
and let's just say I ran into some snags. First
I found out that the seat cushions were made up of a wooden frame and real springs!
So I had to improvise quick and I ordered some upholstery foam from good ole' Amazon.com :)
Then I had my mom just make me the seat covers.
Here it is:
As you can see I still hadn't put the other piece of molding on the right arm. I will take some more pics of it with some cute little pillows I'm working on.
I learned quite a bit from this project, such as :
Cutting foam is NOT that easy
Making seat cushions that fit perfectly is not that easy
Use upholstery tacks and not staples!!
I can't remember what else.
But guess what?
I'm going to dive into my two wing chairs next!
Come back and check on my post about those.
In the meantime, I wanted to share with you this awesome
