Before: Good Bones

When shopping for used upholstered pieces, always give the upholstery the "sniff test." Smoke and pet odors can be difficult to remove, and padding is costly to replace. Look for pieces with sturdy solid wood frames, soft padding and foam, and nice lines. Don't be afraid to lift up cushions and test out the piece before you buy. A $15 chair isn't a bargain if it ends up in the trash a few weeks later.
