My mother's mother's mother's couch was in an awfully sad state. Some of the springs had collapsed, webbing had come loose, the upholstery shredded, dirty, and faded.  So I decided to do something about it.  I love owning that couch, but it didn't serve much purpose anymore.  People actually avoided sitting on it. 




Couldn't afford a pro job so I took tools and ebay fabric in hand and went at it. 



I have never ever done anything like this before, and it turned out pretty decent.  In retrospect, maybe I should have practiced on something less old/fragile/complicated/totally irreplaceable.




Ignore the mess on the floor, I had just had the couch upside-down with it's guts strewn all over the living room for 3 weeks, so I hadn't done much cleaning.

well done!  I want to reupholster my living room furniture, but I've been a little freaked out about it, since this would be a DYI job as well.  Thanks for inspiring me!
