Right before Christmas we brought my Grandma’s old couch home that had been sitting in a garage for over a year. So first it was my Grandma’s (My dad’s mom) then after she moved to a retirement home it came to live at my parents house for several years. Time and kids jumping on it took it’s toll and the front panel ripped. They didn’t know how to fix it and the repairman said was a huge/expensive job. So it was relinquished to my other grandma’s (my mom’s mom) garage. I have a soft spot in my heart for tufted couches and I was eager to get rid of these chairs. Hard to see, looking back through the posts, I barely have them pictured! They are beige run-of-the-mill hotel chairs.
You can see the couch here, but I cleverly (meaning cheaply) covered the front with a blanket
This Saturday Nick and I decided to tackle it…after a mouse was chased into the couch cavity by Jack!! EW. Well that settles it. No more procrastinating, (don’t worry, Jack got the critter.) First a look at the beast
Ugh, what a mess. So once we looked it over we realized what the problem was, the metal frame was originally help down by nails in the wood frame, they broke over time causing the front panel to rip off from the strain. I don’t know what the repairman didn’t realize that, but at least the couch has a home now!
