the moment you've all been waiting for...


We're back!! Did you miss us? Probably. Just kidding..Ok but seriously, this is pretty exciting for us. We have finally reupholstered our couch!!!! Now, just remember that the lighting in our apartment is not exactly awesome so the picture doesn't quite do it justice. We are soooooo glad to have finished such a crazy project. I knew this would be a fairly lengthy project with some difficult spots, but let me tell you, it was harder than we had anticipated. Really, it was all pretty easy except when it came to the arms of the sofa. After sewing, picking, sewing, and picking for nearly 5 hours or more...we decided to try another strategy. Since Drew is the think tank in this marriage, Drew came up with an awesome solution for those arms of ours. It is comfy and looking as good as ever. Here's a picture of the finished guy...Now that we have sat on it a few weeks, the fabric has started to stretch ever so slightly causing these wrinkles, but we intend to pull it tight again so we will be wrinkle free! Maybe we will have the opportunity to do it again some day and do an even better job now that we know what we are doing...maybe a chair or something.
