Anyway...I had been on the lookout for a cool couch for this room. I had tossed around the idea of putting in two club chairs but decided on a couch so that it could hold more people. We actually use this room and I wanted something comfortable. I searched for weeks for the perfect piece of furniture. I found an awesome chesterfield sofa but it was $6,000. Yeah right, no way would I spend that on a couch for a playroom.
I ended up finding a couch on Craigslist by searching "tufted" every few weeks. When we got it home I thought "oh my gosh, this thing is hideous, what did we do." It was super heavy and smelled like wet dog. We got it in the house and I immediately threw a blanket over it because it was such an eyesore. Even though I bought it with the intention on recovering it I couldn't look at it until I had a plan. Our friends had left us a small wing back chair that I wanted to recover also.
After fabric shopping several times I finally found the perfect fabric for the couch and chair. I have recovered furniture before and it's almost more difficult when you have more choices. Now that I have rambled on about these two pieces of furniture here are the pictures.
