Great article! Thank you for using a photo of one of my interior design projects for one of my clients. I attach a photo of an antique settee I had reupholstered in faux white leather. xo xo

Smdrovetto and hammerhugger - thanks for the like! The fabric was the inspiration for my new bedroom and helps the love seat fit into a more contemporary space. I really love how it turned out.

@ptucker -- You did a great job!

For all of you who have pets/kids/sloppy friends, etc. please note that Pet Smart and Petco have a product called Nature's Miracle and believe me, it works wonders! Puke all over the back of the car . . . you'd never know it. Oops, Mommy, I wet the bed . . . you'd never know it. What do you mean you ate a Sloppy Joe on the couch . . . you'd never know it (although it took extra work). Gave some to a friend who has five dogs . . . dog smell gone. You get the idea.

I had a large couch and love seat that I love, but the fabric is worn out. I also had two easy chairs that were worn out, but I loved them and they had been given to me. Had all of them reupholstered and I'm happy I did. It was not cheap, but if you love what you own then go ahead and reupholster it. I had the couch cut down to 1- 1/2 chair size and bought the material for those 2 pieces at $9.99/yard (needed 18 1/2 yds but got 21 yds to be on the safe side and to make pillows). If you look at the upholsterer's work, you'll know whether or not to hire him. I didn't have the time or energy to attempt so much myself.

The fabric on the mid-century sofa is fabulous! My daughter loves the hairy chairy!
