This week i am Featuring  Christine from ManagingTheChaos.com – She and her hubby built a dream barn that functions as a huge hang out and entertaining space on their property. It’s fabulous…you don’t want to miss seeing all the amazing details.  Remember when i shared with y’all this commissioned painting I did last year for a family in Kansas City?  Well, Now you and I get to see and read about the same barn !

So, here we go with Reupholstering a Vintage Sofa Part 3.  If you missed Part 1, you can find it HERE.  If you missed part 2, you can find it HERE.

This Post is relatively short, as after making and putting in 54 tufts, my fingers needed a serious break!  I used the old fabric as my guide, and cut out the same shape on my white duck cloth. Then i used the old fabric to mark where my new holes should be for the tufting.  I did this just by laying the old fabric on top of the new fabric, and used a pen to push through the old holes from the tufts and marking the new fabric.  That got kind of wordy… did that make sense?!  Once i had the new fabric marked, i placed the fabric on top of the foam, and went about putting my tufts in:

I continued on this way for the whole length of the back of the sofa.  I kept laying it on the frame to make sure i liked the direction it was going…

Excuse all the fabric laying around during the process!  After several hours, and very sore fingers, i finally had the back finished.  I may add another layer of padding, which would mean removing the tufts and re-doing them (unless i can find another way that i’m happy with).  I haven’t decided yet on that.

I know it will tighten up when i secure the sides to the frame, and i like that it has a relaxed farmhouse look to it as is, but i can’t decide if one more layer of padding would make me happier … or not.  I will figure it out this week i guess, and will share the new progress with y’all next week!

Now it’s your turn! We want to see the projects y’all have been working on!!
