yes... thank you... I think I am going to bite the bullet and buy the gun and hook it up to my brothers compressor and ask him to help me...the sofa and chair have those tacks everywhere and I looked them up and they are expensive I think I will get some flat tacks and put them on then E6000 the rhinestone to the tack ... I think it will be around 40 bucks to do both of them this way vs. the 300 just for the tacks...

This is what it kinda looks like...


I want to paint the wood silver and do the sofa in turquoise.. and put some kinda picture on it... I think I will put a group of silver and yellow stars or a sun.... I don't know about that yet but first thing is first ... recover and conqure!!

Thanks for the tips... if you have anymore... I would love to hear them.... Big hug!

I would not touch that couch in the picture, other than to park my ass in it!

I didn't ask the scotch guard question.  I have used it where it's worked and where it hasn't.  Be sure to do a test patch before you spray.

I don't have any specific books to lead you to...I have several older and newer upholstery books and slipcover books.  I did the arms more like slipcovers.  I think any books with pictures would work best.

Also, be sure to pay close attention when you start taking things apart.  Try to keep the old peices as they are to use as patterns.  It helps to take pictures as you go as well.  It's too easy to forget how that went with this, etc.!

I love that couch!  I wish I had a big sectional couch that cheap that I could afford to recover like you have.  That is so amazing, it doesn't look like the same couch at all, you would have never known what it was before.  I love the black and white pattern.

Thanks!

Someone metioned painting the legs black...I went back and forth with that after I read it.  There is so much other wood in the room I have decided to leave them alone for now.
