Hi! I'm so glad I found this site. I'm wondering if reupholstering an antique Victorian settee living room set would be too much of a project for a complete novice, like myself. I want to rip the settee open to see what will I find. I have to admit that's very scary to me. I've looked for YouTube videos, but haven't found anything that helps me figure out HOW TO tackle this project.
Not only do I not like the color of my antique, but the smell is horrible! I've tried everything to make the stink go away, nothing's worked, and I've finally came to the conclusion that it's either have to go or it needs to be reupholstered. Having it professionally done is out of the question (they're asking almost $5k---- crazy people in my town). What tools would I need and how much will they cost? If I find that my antique has "horse hair", do I need to replace it with horse hair or could I use something else? I'm only 5'2" tall and 110 Lbs., will I be able to handle this job? The antiques are very heavy, but I've been able to push them around HELP! Thanks. My settee set looks like this, but mine is a loud red color.
