The Ambitiously Large Project #2
I recruited Ryan for disassembly. Mostly, so he could also see how this thing goes together. In case I forget. He says that bed has to come out. I think I could manage with it in, but he's going to want to take it out. It's not the taking it out that's the issue. It's the getting it back in. I don't have a lot of faith in that.
It's nice to know the innards of a couch consist primarily of plywood, huh? Lane made this furniture. I've heard there are couches with cardboard middles.
I ripped all bazillion pieces from the cushion apart. Seriously, it was a lot of pieces. Pinned them on the new fabric and cut out new pieces.
All day later, I have one cushion done. If it looks a little wonky, it's because it's a little wonky. I guess I could fix it, but I don't even know how to get it right. I have an idea once the whole thing is done. There were a couple of random stitches that didn't make sense on the origninal. Maybe, they were to control wonky-ness. I dunno. At any rate, while I'm annoyed it isn't perfect, I'm cool with the outcome considering it was my first attempt.
Part of the reason it took all day is because I topstitched all the seams.
Dinner. I didn't even feel like eating. But...that probably was limited to me. So, I made a quick salad. Pretty sure you've seen it before.
