I've been wanting to reupholster a piece of furniture for a while. I wanted to find a piece that was worth being redone. I recently fell in love with Duncan Phyfe. Here is a picture of a Duncan Phyfe sofa that needed a little TLC
And here is the same sofa after Calico Corners got a hold of it
So what I plan to do is purchase this one
and make it fabulous!
Did you know that Duncan Phyfe furniture is used in The Green Room in The White House? Who Knew?! I mean I know its antique and all but wow. Just a little something I learned while researching Duncan Phyfe on Wikipedia.

What have you reupholstered lately? Are you afraid to do it? Do you have any advice for me like Janell posted on her blog (It wasn't just for me!)? I want to hear what you have to say!
