Making Good – Repair Upholstery Holes

Upholstery Repair



I have been learning and having a blast at the different repair stops on the Making Good Blog Train, and I am thrilled to share a skill that I learned from my Dad as a teen: repairing upholstery holes in furniture, cars, and carpets!  Trust me, knowing how to do this type of repair has saved me a ton of money through the years, especially when you have kids, animals, family, or friends who can be a little clumsy at times.  It’s been a super, quick, fix, solution in repairing tiny stains that I couldn’t remove, kitty scratches on the couch, or glue/burn holes, which has given me some time valuable time until I could buy something new. 🙂


Check out my video tutorial below with tips & tricks on repairing a panel on a sectional couch below:




I hope you enjoyed my video, and as you can see, with a little practice anyone can repair their own upholstery & carpet holes.  In fact, I have bought some fabulous pieces of furniture at thrift stores and garage sales because of this little repair trick, and of course I have to mention that’s it’s been a super way to save.  Here is the link to the Permatex Fabric Repair Kit available at Amazon.  🙂  


And don’t forget to continue your ride along on the Making Good Blog Train and see what cool repair project Carrie shares at tomorrow!  Carrie, is a curly-haired mama who enjoys sharing DIY, crafting, beauty & fashion tips!
