This is a teaser pic of my nephew's lazy boy couch, which was reupholstered in Realtree cotton duck.
The center section is in the upright position here.

The center section is folded down in this one.

After the holidays, and when I figure out which photo hosting site to go with, I'll upload the whole lot of pics taken during the process.

Wow that is incredible. Did you do all that work?

I know a few men who would love a couch like that.

I am blown away .. but please please please don't let our men know we can redo their lazyboys.. I was kinda hoping to get rid of Mr. Ps by telling him it could not be reupholstered..
