I was just surfing aimlessly and found a post about reupholstering. I don’t know why but I love the idea of seeing an old piece of furniture being given a new breath of life, like a reborn.

Old Furniture By Lucy Godden

Dust settles on old furniture,
Like a veil eclipsing the past.
Every scratch a remembrance,
Each shadow we once cast.

Faded lipsticks on old coffee mugs,
Each well-read book,
Each loving look.
Are stolen now, we did what we could.

Memories of me and you,
Are stains in this old abandoned room.
They are but memories now, we never knew
As I grow into adulthood; furniture anew.

Here’s a tutorial I found on youTube on reupholstering:
