In doing so, a friend provided us a love seat that needed some TLC, that both my husband and I decided would be worth the time and investment. We were correct.
Spending time with my husband on a sewing project proved to be something that we both found to be rewarding. Please keep in mind, that my husband did all the staple & pin removing, repaired all frame issues while utilizing his woodworking skills, re-stuffed the frame where needed, then added the selected fabric to the frame.
My sewing skills recovered the cushions& create the couch skirts for David to add to the finished frame. I recovered a set of pillows that went with a chair we have now decided needs to be reupholstered as well.
The curtains that were made, are simple drapes made of a suede upholstery fabric.
Friends have asked if upholstery will be added to my services. Personally, I will continue to recover cushions & pillows for customers as well as create curtains and drapes. I will take on the small projects, such as ottoman's & stools. But, I am not personally interested in large upholstery work, but I would open my schedule and work with my husband if he decides this is something he is interested in pursuing.
Currently we have a chair that is now ready for his skills as well as a couch he is contemplating on working on for some friends. Time will tell if this is something that will become a side job for him.
Would I do this again? Spending time with my husband, working on something that requires patience, and attention to detail? I most certainly would.
