Want a little peek into how it was done, then look no further. Here’s a sweet time-lapse video of the couch during nine two-hour classes:

    I would LOVE to do something like that. I have a loveseat that my grandfather bought 3 months before he passed away. It’s in perfect condition (Papa didn’t buy cheap stuff), and I love the shape of it, but the pattern is just hideous.

    My best friend recovered an antique rocking chair of my great-grandmother’s while taking an upholstery class at the local community college. How cool is that!
