3 Day Upholstery Makeover

2 Materials
3 Days

I’ve had this little settee waiting in my garage for over month on me make a decision on its next look. I finally decided to do a contrasting front & back for a cool modern look while keeping the frame traditional. It took 3 days to do the full makeover but I attempted to do it a weekend (unsuccessfully). Check out the YouTube video I made all about the project and make sure you subscribe to the channel for
