    I don't know how I found this site, but in the on-the-cheap home improvement area of the site, I saw something about restoring old furniture with fabric scraps. Well, I had to look. All I can say is WOW!

    Very nice. I would love to have a Victorian sofa redone with an old vintage quilt in pastel colors.

    OK. I want all of you ladies with the gigantic sewing rooms to get to work! :D
    I personally think they're stunning. Not at all what I expected when I clicked on that link!

    Those are gorgeous. I did reupholstery before I became disabled. We never did anything like this. Wish I had. Might have to do one for myself.

    Those are really beautiful, but re-upholstering something is hard work!

    Love the furniture - defiantly makes one heck of a difference looks way more comfortable than what they would have been like originally.

    I recovered the seats of my dinette set with diagonally stitched strips of quilting fabric. Not as elegant as these for sure, but I do like them alot! And the cost was next to nothing!

    Wow! Those are increadable! I hate to think what they are charging for items that have been picked up for a song. How cool is that?
