Dear AT,

I've just purchased this black vinyl sofa for $30.

From the pictures (from the previous owner's home) it looked so sleek, but really two of the cushions have huge gashes in the vinyl.

I was wondering if anyone has tried using vinyl repair kits, and whether they really work like it does on TV?...

If not I was probably going to try having them reupholstered, but I can't decided whether to do it in vinyl or fabric (maybe velvet) and which color to use.

If you could help me, I would so appreciate it.

Thanks! Victoria
