"Spruce" shows you how.
In the book, author and upholstery shop owner Amanda Brown takes readers step by step through her work on six projects she undertook for her own home. Plenty of photos accompany the text.
By learning the techniques involved in those projects, a person would be prepared to make over any piece of upholstered furniture, Brown says.
She doesn't claim upholstery is easy, but she believes the results can be worth all the effort and setbacks.
"Spruce: A Step-By-Step Guide to Upholstery and Design" sells for $35 in hardcover and is available in ebook form.
