The next few nights were spent wondering where it went when Granny moved. No luck so I set out this past summer to see if it was something I could do myself.
Well other than threading the needle on the sewing machine for Granny when she started collecting quilting squares, I stayed away from the sewing machine. I was given an old machine by a friend who was fed up with sewing. I purchased a few DVD's on upholstery, and stopped in a few local upholstery shops and became painfully aquainted with foam and fabric, asked questions, made a materials list and started shopping. What you see is the result.
I spoke to the designer at Hairpinlegs.com, But he didn't carry the legs in stainless steel in the thickness I needed to support the sofa at the height I needed. He did agree they should be thicker.The hairpin legs were designed on a free 3D software package called Sketchup and printed out and taken to a local welding shop, Greens Welding & Repair in Westland Michigan. They came out perfect! I hope I did the design justice.
Wow! Wonderful job - thanks for sharing, Mark!
