I’m starting another category, this one called “How To.” If you missed it, I also have an “Easy” category which includes projects that are exceedingly easy. The “How To” category will include stand-alone skills and tasks that are useful in furniture-making, repair, makeover, upcycle, redo, decor-making, and the like. In this post, I show how I fixed our very saggy sofa by rehabilitating the springs.
When I was contemplating starting this blog, I knew I would be making some furniture. I also had another theme in mind, which is–Learn to love what you have. Or maybe better stated–Make what you have something you love. So what about this sofa? I liked it well enough, but it was in rough shape. We had this sofa for several years, and over time I noticed it was getting “soft.” Finally it got so soft, I had to do something about it because it was starting to feel like I was sitting on the floor while sitting on the sofa. Being not one iota curious about why the sofa was sagging, my solution was to cut a piece of pegboard and put it under the seat cushions. This was good enough for a few years.
