Sofa Upholstery Repair

Please say “Hello” to Akyn’s new pair of sandals before I will start sharing the meat of today’s blog entry. His Dad gave him a surprise gift last night. Aww♥ How thoughtful! Akyn slept last night holding his new footwear close to him. I guess, he just loved it so much and didn’t want the sandals to be out of his sight. What a grateful toddler!



My Mama happened to asked one of our neighbors last week about their newly delivered Sofa Set. Out of her curiosity, she asked as to where did they purchase them? She was amazed when she was told that it was an old one and they had it repaired for a cheap price. With her excitement, she run back to the house and told me that the repair men from the upholstery shop would like to check our damaged sofa.

Honestly, I was tempted to dispose this Sofa set but because of its sentimental value, I decided to keep it until I can find someone who can repair it for a cheaper cost. This is one of the few pieces of furniture Mon and I bought after our wedding. It was our project where in every pay-day we would buy one piece of furniture at home. Over time the leather cover worn out. Maybe due to the tropical weather  we have here and of course, I have a curious toddler who would like to discover things.



This is Akyn’s favorite spot. I really don’t have any idea on how he managed to create a hole on it. There was one time, I was eating my pasta in the living room and I was so absorbed watching the TV. When I was about to eat, I was astonished when I saw my plate with blue foam toppings. Akyn was so busy decorating my plate with the foam from the sofa.

I want to hug him so tight every time I can remember our cute sofa-pasta toppings incident.





Free pick up and delivery service was included on the agreement and a 50% down payment was required as well. It was last Sunday when they picked up the damage Sofa and then delivered it yesterday. Wow, that was an incredibly fast service!

Sharing you on how the newly repaired L-shaped sofa looked like now. I chose the color brown as it would match the color accent at home. I didn’t select to have another leather cover and opted to have a cloth cover instead. I have an imaginative toddler who loves creating holes for leather sofas.



Akyn was clapping his hands in excitement and was hugging the Sofa set when it was delivered. Did he miss it perhaps?



He wanted to join the photo session. He is my adorable Sofa model.



My next project is to find a throw pillow that will compliment the color of our brown L-shaped sofa. What color of throw pillow do you think matches best with it ?

Any suggestions please is appreciated.☺


  1. A lot matches Brown. I’d probably go with a pop of colour – think teal, aquamarine, or maybe a rich Burgundy depending on the rest of your house.
    I love the great job you did on the repair! Thats amazing. Reduce, Reuse Recycle.

    1. Oh thank you so much for the suggestion. This is going to be my next project on my list for the throw pillows .

  2. Opt for a cream colour cushions:) & great make over of your Sofa.

    1. Your suggestion is much appreciated. Thanks for dropping by. ?

  3. What a great job you did.. and what a cute model you have!

    1. Thanks for dropping by. ?

  4. Aww.. Love the new refurbished sofa but your sofa model is way cuter ?

    1. Thanks for dropping by. Have a nice weekend. ?

  5. When my son was two years old, he also managed to destroy our sofa which was just 6 months old. The spring of the sofa sprung! Maybe it wss because he loved jumping on it. We had no choice but to throw it afterwards because reupholstery here cost as much as a brand new sofa. Go figure. After our destroyed sofa fiasco, i just buy inexpensive ones so that my heart and wallet won’t be broken just in case another sofa catatrophe happens

    1. Thanks for reading. I can totally relate the feeling of spending again for damaged things at home. ha-ha . Amazing curious little fellows.

  6. I would go with a burgundy. I love the way brown and burgundy looks together!

    1. Thank you so much for the suggestion Inez. ?
