DIY Leather Repair for Beginners

A damaged leather chair or sofa can sometimes be a simple fix if the problem is slight, like a few minor scratches. Even a minor rip or tear can sometimes be repaired as a DIY project. But when a piece is marred beyond a minor problem, leather repair is best left to the pros. That’s because an inexperienced do-it-yourselfer can do more damage than good to an expensive piece of furniture. On the other hand, a furniture pro can perform amazing transformations on a damaged piece – everything from leather recolor to leather restoration. Take a look at these hacks for leather furniture, but keep in mind that you should always test them first on an inconspicuous part of your leather furniture, to make sure that they work well for the type of leather you have. …

Reupholster Grandma’s Old Furniture, And Watch It Shine like New

If you have the duty to dispose of an elderly relative’s furniture, or if your grandmother gave you her favorite chair (that has seen better days), the temptation is to just throw the furniture out. But don’t. Often, an old or damaged piece of furniture can be transformed with a simple cleaning and repair. And a reupholstery job can sometimes be nothing short of magic. A Shaker chair with a missing slat can be easily fixed, and the piece would fit seamlessly into Early American, retro, country, western and even modern decors. A moth-eaten Victorian couch can come back as Boho chic with a bold floral pattern upholstery. Repairing and reupholstering a piece often costs less than buying a brand new piece. Antique furniture is almost always more interesting than mass produced alternatives — and the antique might even turn out to be valuable! …
Take the right steps when disassembling a fouton or couch

How to Assemble & Disassemble a Futon or Couch

A futon is a hybrid piece of furniture that can be used in the daytime as a sofa, and at night as a simple bed, because it easily folds flat. It’s a nice piece of furniture to own, because if you don’t have a guest room, you can unfold the futon in the den for your overnight visitors. A futon is also easy to assemble/disassemble in a move. It’s relatively lightweight and has simple components that can be taken apart with a wrench and pliers. This makes a futon distinctly different from other heavier pieces of furniture that are best moved by professionals who know how to properly disassemble pool tables, book cases or couches.  A futon can be disassembled into small pieces and easily transported with minimal risk of damage (or injury.) …

Custom Made Furniture Ideas for Tiny Living

You’ve probably seen them on social media, the Internet, or on TV shows like “Tiny House Nation” – small, fabulous homes that are mean, green and energy efficient. Tiny homes are touted as being affordable, earth-friendly, and some are even off the grid. If you don’t have a down payment for a condo or a suburban house, you may well be able to swing a more affordable tiny home. If you need to live in town, but can only afford a studio apartment, you fall in this “tiny living” category as well. Tiny living spurs new entrepreneurs in many areas: some companies make elegant homes out of railroad cars, others manufacture small, modular homes, and others produce furniture custom made for small apartments and tiny houses. …
This furniture might be too old for a DIY fix

When to Junk Furniture & When to do Furniture Repair

When your furniture becomes damaged, the temptation is to either try to fix it yourself, or to throw your hands up in despair and assume the piece is beyond repair. Sometimes those responses can be correct, but it’s critical to know when you can fix it yourself, and when it’s just too far gone for home remedies. Home furniture repair can be effective if the damage is slight, but if you attempt to make a big fix at home, you can ruin a valuable piece.  Here are some tips to help you determine which furniture disasters are DIY fixes, and which need professional help. …
