These babies are now mine thanks to my good friend Craig…(‘s list). (Shhh…don’t tell my husband, I sometimes check him out twice a day). The color and fabric are all wrong but they are in pristine condition.
I’ve spent much time debating what to do with them. The cheapeast option would be to slipcover them…yawn. Been there, done that. Most my furniture is slipcovered.
Next option is to re-upholster them. Too bad it’s so stinkin’ expensive. I’ve even strongly considered DIY’ing them. Crazy talk, I know. Too difficult with two little men running circles around me all day.
Listen to this. Did you know that many prisons have apprentice programs that teach inmates a trade? Upholstery is one of them. They charge about a third of what it would normally cost. Turn around time is 30 days. Sounds a little iffy but I heard their work is excellent! They also offer other services such as sandblasting, powdercoating, metalfab, wood working, etc. This morning I called my Arizona Correctional Industries and had them email me all the info. Check back with me in a month and we’ll see how they turned out.
Hey there! I’m Michelle; I’m an Passionate DIY’er and in constant pursuit of how to bring beauty to my house full of men (3 boys + 1 hubby). Stick around and see what I’ve got up my hard-working sleaves!
