How to Estimate Yardage to Reupholster a Couch
If your couch still has years of structural life left in it but the outer fabric has stains or tears, reupholstering the couch may enable you to keep it a few years longer and save some money now. When you reupholster a couch, you cover the existing fabric with new fabric. Select a fabric you like that complements your other decor and then estimate the yardage you'll need to complete the reupholstery. When you finish, your couch will have a whole new look.
