Antique Settee

My husband and I years ago took an upholstery class together.  So every now and again I try and re-due a little project.

 To the left the two original layers the settee had on it. instead of fixing the bones of the pieces the previous owners just covered things up.  Which made for a lumpy bumpy settee.  I am smoothing things out and re warping things to make it strong and smooth again.

The below fabric is what I am currently putting on it.

 Forgot to take a before photo. This was during tear down of the back of the settee.  The fabric you see on the seat I will be removing It was pretty fabric but was lumpy and the settee creaks and sounds like it is going to fall apart.

 I love brass tacks and pretty trims.
 As you can see the bottom is broken out.  Need to fix that before I can go forward with this project.  Thus the reason it sounds bad and such.

 This it it on hold till I have a moment to figure out if I am fixing the bottom or paying someone to do it. 

This is a collection of the tools and supplies I am using.
 I fond this settee and a matching chair at a local thrift shop the pair was only 60 dollars so I thought it would be a fun thing to do.
