reupholstery before & after

So I finally finished the couch, and the pillows! Wow, what a project! Incredibly fun now that it is over and done with, and I am somewhat amazed that I actually figured out how to do it. I've never done anything like it before, and I'll have to admit it was quite the challenge!

If you want a tutorial on how I made the pillows, head over to Red Velvet Art :)

Im so glad you are back too... you have a strong following here down under xxx You are so clever... it looks amazing. I adore your inspiring blog. Such talent!

I do have a question though... I have messed about trying to make bubble tea and I fail miserably... Im sure there is a no fail recipe... any chance you, or one of the RVA girls could blog a bubble tea recipe??? Please please please? lol Im in Australia and we can get the ingredients from OS but the online shops don't explain how to make it lol I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed but I'd love know how you made it.
Thanks!

Fantastic job! I keep toying with the idea of reupholstering my couch (or at least making a removable cover for it), but so far haven't tried. The pillows are great-- I have the same coffee table :)

This definitely looks like one hell of a project. You made an incredible job! I wish I had those skills, just look at that couch! Best regards!

Wow the end result is great. I'm curious how your costs worked out. If its easier to buy a wrecked couch and fix it than to buy new.

I read all the Sookie Stackhouse books before I watched the series. The books are completely different to the series. I love them can't wait for the new book next year and the 3 season
