Go, Diego, Go...(The story of a couch's new life)

After seeing a post on All Things Thrifty a while back, I knew I needed to find an awesome kids' couch.
And we did just that this past week.
We picked up this couch at our local thrift store, for $2.
And as much as I love Diego, he needed to go. He wasn't looking or smelling too good.
So, with my husband on board, we ripped this bad boy to pieces.
My husband did all of the dirty work...and trust me, it was pretty dirty.
He ripped out the staples, and touched all of the smelly fabric.
Then I cut out new pieces of fabric, using the old pieces as patterns, re-stapled and re-sewed...
PS: Be's our first reupholstered project so it's not perfect.

We LOVE them...the couch and the chubby baby!
And one more before and after...
