We recently stopped by the home of our friends Dave & Jessica to see their "new" sofa. Dave had found the remains of the poor old thing in somebody's trash, and decided the frame was sturdy and in good shape. All it needed was to be reupholstered.
Well, just look at the sofa now! Aren't the patterns gorgeous? I like the multiple fabrics used. I think it will look great in the room. It's a comfortable and large sofa, too. Right now, they are still worried about the dog and cats getting at it. I always have that problem, myself. Our cats have clawed every upholstered chair we've ever had. None of the tricks seem to keep them away.
I wish my friends many long and happy years with their beautiful sofa. And if anyone has any good advice for how to keep cats from scratching furniture (other than declawing!) please let me know!
