Thank you thank you.  It really was a lot easier putting it back together.  Although it did get a little tricky when I ran out of fabric for the back.  There are a few boo-boos but I've been wanting a sofa table anyway!!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My Reupolster Project on: January 25, 2009 11:46:26 AM
So, I was so inspired by KairiGurl's loveseat https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=228476.0 that I decided to do one myself.  It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. 

I did take before pictures, I just can't find them.  So just imagine nasty, dirty, whitish corduroy all over with torn up arms from a vicious kitty...

Heres the out come:

I got the couch for free off Craigslist.  The hard part was tearing everything off.  The rest was pretty easy.  I got the fabric from Joann's. The shells is this blue/brown psychedelic crinkly stuff that changes color depending on how you look at it, and the cushions are a durable stripey brown.  I sprayed scotch guard all over when it was finished, and I keep a blanket on the back to protect it from my devil cat.  I believe it was like, 9 yards of the blue and 3 yards of the brown.  I paid around $100 for the fabric, it was on sale. I even added some extra padding to make it a little more plush.  The padding  wasn't quite long enough, so it looks a little lumpy, but nothing real noticeable.  I just stapled everything down. I probably should have sewed the cushions, but I was feeling extra lazy so I just hot glued the hell out of them.  I'm pretty proud of my self anyway.

Red calla lillies sounds great. You're pics were nice, but where are the ones with the stuff you made? Your dress was beautiful btw.

For everyone else, the timing isnt going well and we're not going to be having a Halloween wedding after all. It'll end up being in the summer of '09. I changed my colors to Red and Black (and although her wedding was BEAUTIFUL I'm going to try to steer away from Sweets ideas. I like to try to be original. Her ideas will be a huge source of inspiration though!)

Thats a good idea. Funny story, I actually just happen to have a frozen dandelion puff in my freezer. LOL. I was out walking my dog one morning and there it was. I thought it was cool, so I picked it and brought it home to my honey. He's suggested dipping it in liquid nitrogen. Thats what were going to try.

Hello craftsters-

so, I found these paperweights that I really really want. They are dandelion puffs encased in resin. I've only ever used resin ondce when I made a HUGE coffee table out of leftover brick and mortar and wood to cover all the brick and mortar to give it a nice smooth top. That was super easy, I just mixed and poured. Can anyone tell me how I could go about making these awesome awesome paperweights? THANX!!

Wow. Thats not bad. I'm always looking for some sort of inspiration... Thanx.

A website I recently found that I love is www.thescrappygourmet.com

So I was buying supplies the othe rnight and I needed a perforating tool... I found one and looked through the rest of the website and bought some more stuff. I was really surprised. It was really inexpensive and it got here super fast too! This may not be the best place to post a website I love, but anyway, it was really cool.
