If you’re ever tempted to reupholster your own furniture, look no further than this example. See the dilapidated love-seat bench below? This is what our customer found when he decided to reupholster his own decades-old settee for a “Saturday project” this summer. Unfortunately, he discovered a chair bottom that needed all new springs, padding and alignment. In a moment of sheer genius, he decided to bring it to us. The gorgeous ancient mahogany wood was solid, so all he needed was an experienced upholstery shop to rebuild the inner workings for a fraction of the cost of a new piece.
At It’s Bout Time Upholstery, we’re a little too popular to churn out a rebuilt piece on a single Saturday, but within a couple weeks, he had an understated (and comfortable!) seat that brings out the lighter golden hues that used to hide in the wood. If you’re faced with a similar problem, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’d be happy to provide an estimate, and help you get your home back in order, one piece at a time.
