Are you right for me or have I lost my mind a little bit? I bought this vintage loveseat from a mom on MONA who inherited it from her mother. She posted it on our listserv and I made a snap decision. What do you think?
I got it home and thought, yes, I think I can make it look pretty cool by distressing and painting the wood. The upholstery is a different story. I called Looney & Sons in Falls Church to see what they would charge to reupholster this piece. I was thinking an unbleached muslin/cotton fabric. They quoted me $500 for just the labor. eeek! So, I said to myself, “Self, you can upholster it.” I have never upholstered anything, but have been studying up. I think I can get the fabric off, but I must admit that measuring is not my strongest suit, as my husband would attest.
Think I can do it? Think it’s worth it?
