UPHOLSTERY, MORE AND MORE A LOST ART. BRING IT BACK!
Anyone can learn to Upholster. High schools and City Colleges are filled with classes on it. Send your kids to the former, you go to the latter. Cuz I see two sofas a day when I drive twenty blocks to the market and I see two arm chairs and a few dining room chairs, with upholstered seats and very rarely a footstool, but all were left on the CURB with a SIGN, "PICK ME UP PUHLEEZE"
You can take all those items and cover them with the rolls of fabric you get at garage sales, or huge wall to wall curtains pulled from old homes, sold at garage sales and dyed brightly by YOU. They do give a royal and prosperous LOOK and will absolutely keep a very poor and frugal living room looking very spiffy!
THE RAYON ON THESE CHAIRS was ONCE SOMEBODY's CURTAINS.
WE RAN the fabric THROUGH THE WASHER WITH SOME BLUE DYE, and VOILA
TWO FREEBIE ARMCHAIRS, cost ya maybe $1,000 at a store, but ours? FREE!
Just to get an idea what upholstering takes, see: http://www.upholster.com/howto/
Also go to http://www.upholster.com/howto/reupch.html
Go to the local corner, upholstery store. Walk in the back. See the machines.
See the cutting table, shears. But don't ask the owner about what's involved. Cuz
they'll tell you it's super hard, make it look like brain surgery. You can ask the
little Mexican worker... even get them to come to your house and do the work
on weekends! Or train you. He or she has the tools.
Now, investigate DYING. And which curtains dye up well. Thrift stores are
loaded with curtains, so are garage sales and estate sales so investigate dying
FABRICS. And where to buy the great dyes online.
