I've really been wanting to re-upholster something, so my first shot with something FREE sounded perfect!
Keep in mind that I think I can do anything. While Chris supports most of my endeavors, he does reel me back into reality quite a bit.
I thought I'd give you an insight into our marriage. I found this listing over lunch and IM'd it to Chris telling him I wanted to go pick it up...here's how the rest of the conversation went down:
Chris: the couch is kinda gross
me: strip down and recover
i want to recover something
Chris: have you forgotten about your allergies
me: no, i'll tear it all down outside
while wearing my cool mask
Chris: are you going to restuff it
it's called batting not stuffing
i'm not making a durn turkey
i'm laughing though
Chris: with what
Chris: you cant sew yet
me: staple gun
me: don't omg me...i've seen it done!
Chris: dont you think you should start small
me: nah, go big or go home
Chris: not a whole frecking couch
me: well, because it's a frecking couch and not a freaking couch, i think i can handle it.
Chris: do youknow that will be serveral hundred for just the fabic..
me: no way
Chris: 14 yards
me: i'll find clearance fabric
clearance fabric is like 2$ a yard
so that's 30$
me: don't dude me
Chris: where the heck do you want to put it
me: we have a 3400 square foot home. i'm pretty sure i'll find it a place. Perhaps the game room?
Or if we can't, I can sell it!
Chris: i dont know if we need a pull out if we are getting it for a game room
plus they are uncomfortable
me: you suck
So, I have no new/old couch to recover for this weekend...or the next month or two, or however long it would've taken...but, my hubs is a smart guy most of the time, and he's probably right on this one...sigh...oh well.
I'll just have to find something else to create after work! Err...or, maybe I should just finish the doors...
