Ok, generally in my restorations, or furniture project it doesn't take me 3 days. But this sectional is driving me crazy. I have never reulpholstered anything in my life, and now I know why I haven't tried to tackle this before. After removing hundreds of tacks and staples, I now have to use hundreds of staples to hold this new fabric on. After several cuts and scraps on my fingers and hands, it's almost completely covered. Today I had to pull the sewing machine out of the closet and dust it off. See, hubby thought it would be a really nice Christmas present a few years back. I had mentioned wanting a sewing machine once, but not using one since I was in 7th grade, I was "pleasantly" surprised to receive one. Every gals Christmas dream! So I attempted my hand at stitching the back with piping. Here's my attempt, not quite finished. I have to figure out how to attach the fabric to the one side since my staple gun won't fit. Now I have to sew the bottom cushion and add some trim to cover my staples. UGH!
