I had a seasoned & overstuffed sofa I kept in our front room.
When our mother moved into a small apartment, she asked me if I would care about having the sofa.
Although the upholstery was getting a little worn, When I went to the reupholstering shop, the sofa seemed pretty solid for its age. I couldn’t understand why anyone would throw away a sofa when it still had such nice framework and structure. I decided I was going to take the sofa to a reupholstering shop plus make it brand new. When I got to the reupholstering shop, it surprised me when they took me on a tour of the shop. I got to see how they tore down furniture, repaired wood if needed, tightened the wooden frame, added all new stuffing, plus then started the reupholstering. It fascinated me with all the manual labor that went into reupholstering an seasoned sofa plus turning it into a new piece of furniture. He then led me into a small anteroom that was crowded with nothing but upholstery material. He helped me select the perfect pattern plus colors that I wanted to match in our residing room. I chose brass buttons plus tacks that would hold the upholstery on the outside. The hardest part of the upholstering process was the time I had to wait for our sofa to be returned. Waiting for our sofa to be completely reupholstered was almost as tedious as waiting for our child to be born. I was anxious, excited, plus even afraid of what I was bringing back home. My child brought me years of joy, plus I was hoping our new sofa would bring me decades of comfort.
