I have unsuccessfully been trying to remove the fabric. I cannot even get the fabric off!! What was I thinking?!
I'm going to keep at it...but sometimes, I realize all of my ideas aren't as great as they seem. Like, "let's re-upholster a sofa two weeks before Thanksgiving so that we don't even have a sofa to sit on when guests come over. I mean, it can't be that hard can it - even though I've never done it before...I'll just learn as I go. Experience is the best teacher, right?"
Wish me luck!
