before and after

before & after: tiffany’s couch (and weeder’s digest note)

by Grace Bonney

well hello, beautiful sofa. d*s reader tiffany from lubbock texas bought this couch for $20 on craigslist. she decided to reupholster it herself using clearance fabric ($3 a yard!), a staple gun, paint and some new padding. the result? a brand new, gorgeous sofa. the color is so rich and the final result is so chic- well done, tiffany!

[have a before & after you’d like to share on d*s? just shoot me an email right here with your images!]

[UPDATE: minor internet issues here today- sarah’s weeder’s digest post will be up tomorrow. sorry for the delay on my part]
