Don’t replace it; re-upholster that special piece of furniture

Don't replace it; re-upholster that special piece of furniture.

It is that time of year again. With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season it is easy to lose sight of the meaning behind it all. The holidays have a different meaning and hold special memories for each and every one of us, but what we can all agree on, is that the holidays are a time to come together with family and friends and to take the time to just enjoy each other's company. Thanksgiving time and dinner is filled with a great feast of food and time spent catching with one another. Christmas brings the brightly colored decorations, a celebration of giving and receiving with our loved ones. We each have our own reasons for giving gifts and our own idea of what a gift should be.
There are no rules that say a gift has to come in any particular shape or size. Why not think outside the box when deciding on a gift for this holiday season? Maybe you don't need to go out and buy something that is brand new. Recreate a special memory by giving the gift of restoring what your loved ones already own.
Is there a piece that has been in the family for many years that has been passed down by generations? Take an inventory of your furniture and think about what can be repaired, restored or re-upholstered prior to the busy holiday season that is quickly approaching right around the corner. How comfortable is your sofa? Is it time to replace the old padding, to restore the cushions?

This will help make the hours that you spend visiting with your loved ones much more comfortable for those long hours of catching up. We all seemed to own one of those older recliners that everyone wants to just sit back and relax in. Has it seen better days? Don't replace it; consider making repairs, re-pad or even reupholster that special chair. Before you gather around that dining room table for a wonderful tasty meal, the furniture experts suggest that you have those wobbly chairs re-glued to ensure they are safe and secure.

Did you know that you can restore your furniture back to its original condition to make it look and feel brand new again?
Most importantly, this holiday season, it is important to remember the size of gift does not matter; the greatest gift of all is the act of giving itself. What is more joyful than watching the special people you care about open a gift that you chose especially for them? It is a gift of its own just to see the joy you are able to bring to others.
