We’ve all been there: you start a project when it suddenly spirals into much more work than expected. Kata knows this pain first-hand. This Neo-Baroque couch seemed to be in good shape — she just wanted to change the fabric — but as she took it apart, she saw she was in for a bigger job.

Wowee. That looks like so much work, but boy was it worth it.

Kata says, “I had to go down to the frame and rebuild the couch with brand new materials — new springs, new foam, new tapestry.”

Wanna take on your own project? Kata made a detailed tutorial. It’s in Hungarian but the photos themselves are enough to help you through some major upholstery challenges.

See all the photos and details on her blog Kicsihaz.

Thank you Kata!
