my mom has started a big project... reupholstering a pair of loveseats (originally bright yellow and very 60's). and she's chronicling her progress in a weblog! I thought you guys might be inerested in seeing it. Right now she is still in the "taking everything apart" stages... but if you are interested in seeing how a couch is put together, she has been taking pictures through the whole process.
If anyone has suggestions for her, that's awesome! you should leave her a comment (in the link under each post).
here's a before picture of couch#1:
and here's the link to her blog.
