So what did we buy and what did it cost?
8yds Solarium Halliwell Caribbean Indoor/Outdoor fabric (striped) - $99
12yds Royal Blue Duck Canvas - $126
5 spools of thread - $20
Velcro - $30
1yd Solarium Skywalk Caribbean Indoor/Outdoor fabric - $12
For under $300 we replaced all the upholstery on the boat except for the v-berth, which we'll probably do this summer sometime once we find some additional padding to add to it. Not bad considering paying a professional to do this job would have been somewhere between $1500 and $2000. Ron likes to think that his time is more valuable than that. I beg to differ.
|Ripping the seams on the old nasties|
|We're not very tidy reupholsterers|
|We needed all the help we could get|
|Seats almost done, just need some velcro|
|Woohoo! The stripes are straight!|
|All the backrests also got some velcro on the back to keep them in place|
|Ready to go on the boat!!|
It feels good to have our biggest winter project done, but we've still got plenty more to keep us busy until it warms up around here!
May 2014 be your best year yet!!
