After all the new fabric has been attached to the couch, the last step is to cover any visible edges or staples with trim or tacks. My couch had a pool noodle type padding on the front that I also added some extra batting to. Staple the back side of the fabric by wrapping it over the back of the couch, and staple the front as close to the wood as you can so it will be covered with trim later. On my couch, the outside edges of the arms were created with tack strips to give them a nice edge and hide the staples. The back side of the arm is done in a similar manner, folding and stapling the material around the back of the couch. When purchasing your materials, I highly recommend going to the fabric store in person to select a fabric for your couch.

My secret weapon is Biokleen’s Bac-Out Stain and Odor Remover. I found out about it when I cloth-diapered my two boys for their first two years. Only time I ever went searching the Mommy blogs for info, but it works well on dirty diapers, so why not other stains. This post is a little long because there is a lot of info.

But if the pros appeal more to you than the cons in this list, great! Check out all of these lovely velvet couches and chairs from The Brick. If my dry or damp cloth method doesn’t work or if you really want to use something other than plain water, try these velvet sofa cleaning instructions. As with any cleaning solution, make sure you do a patch test in a small area (preferably a hidden area!) before you do a large and visible section. Just make sure you use a soft brush meant for upholstery.

How much space do I need per person?

Measure the width from arm to arm because that is usually the widest part of the sofa. You need to make sure that you take the width measurements at the widest point. For instance, if the couch you selected has rolled arms, measure from the outside of the widest part of one arm to the other arm and not at the bottom near the legs.

How long do couches last? How often should you replace them?

Another one of my favorite Saturday morning activities is shopping at half off day at estate sales. In Corpus Christi, estate sales tend to start on Thursdays or Fridays, so by the time Saturday comes around prices are much lower. It’s super light and easy to move around with and comes with 2 cleaning brush heads, as well as a small bottle of their Pro Max cleaning solution. The machine is honestly so simple, light-weight, and easy to operate. The chair I’m about to show you is in our children’s play room. I’ve given up on keeping food and drink off of it, and no matter how hard I try to stay on top of the stains, it starts looking icky FAST. Dave and I honestly thought we were going to have to burn this chair, and I am not even joking (lol).
