that sounds like an awesome room! how about cutting large palm leaves out of green paper and pinning them up on the ceiling? You could cover the intire ceiling so that it feels like you are under the tree canopy.

I found the split-stitch was the easiest for me to master, so maybe start with that first?

Using a screwdriver or a utility knife to remove fabric can be dangerous and cause injury.  It may also ruin any exposed wood you have on your couch.

This is true! I guess I wasn't very clear - I've really only recovered chairs before, but every time I have had to remove screws to dis-assemble it, so obviously, a screw driver will be very handy for that. Also, sometimes, upolstery fabric will have  a latex coating over the back of the fabric. In the past I have found it hard to cut through with scissors, so I have used a utility knife to carfully cut out my fabric.

If you have grooves, you can fill them with wood filler and sand.  I had two spots that I filled in and you cannot tell.

Unfortunately, the grooves are so deep that the top laminate layer has started to peel up - the damage is so bad that short of ripping up the laminate layer there really isn't anything I can do for refinishing.

Ooooh. I like it. It could be like that "365 Days of Cats" calendar that I buy every year where you send in a picture of your cat and then they put them into a calendar. We could send in pictures of our projects, and Jenny could pick the best ones and then make a calendar. It could be sprinkled with stitching tips and maybe even a pattern in the "centerfold"! I'd buy that!

I love that idea!

Looks like you did a great job - I love the lining fabric.
