I spent several hours last night and this morning removing loads of staples from our old couch. I know, I’m a real party animal. Whoo-hoo!
I’m finding that the reupholstery prep is not too difficult, but very labor intensive, time consuming and a little painful when your hand slips. (My first injury came about 15 minutes after I started.)
Looking at my naked couch it is very clear that there is no turning back now. I’m committed to this couch make-over project. The goal is to get it put back together today. Now I’m off to buy some new padding and a few other supplies. I want to do a good job on this because I don’t want to have to repeat this process for many, many years. Somehow it’s just not as fun as knitting, at least not yet. I might change my mind when I get out the electric staple gun. I’m starting to really dig power tools. : )
