Reupholster Baker sofa or buy new?
I have the Baker churchill dressmaker sofa that I purchased in 1983. They still make it, and I've checked it out and now it's over $6,000 w the basic fabric choice.
I love the size, it's always been the most comfortable sofa. I had it reupholstered in 1994. In 2005 I gave it to my son who used it for several years in their home.
Now I've got it back, and it will fit perfectly in the living room we are building.
Do you think it's worth reupholstering? It's gotten continuous use for close to 30 years.
What are the considerations I need to know about if we decide to reupholster it?
A new $6000 sofa is not in the budget. If we buy new we won't be able to spend much more than the $1500-$2000 I've budgeted for reupholstering this one.
What are your thoughts?
