Couch refinish: Blending Old with New

What are you most proud of? The old and new blend beautifully together and the cushion corners match perfectly:) What advice would you give someone starting this project? As always check for accuracy! If the corners don't match up on the bottom cushions the whole look will be affected. Use a very narrow zipper foot and incorporate enough seam allowance to use it for the piping as well- this makes the pattern match perfect as the fabric was not cut and resewn.

You Can Make This

SuzanneA made Couch refinish: Blending Old with New with:
