Online DIY Upholstery Videos

I get asked by a lot of people where I learned to reupholster and refinish furniture. The number one thing that worked for me was just trying it. To be able to have the confidence to try a project I watched a lot of online videos. I read a lot books that included directions and photos but seeing someone do something step-by-step on video made me feel comfortable to try it by myself at home and from doing it I learned my own tips and tricks. I recently found some great videos about building and upholstering ottomans; this is my next project.

This Todd Oldham video is great but even the boring homemade videos are very helpful. You can type just about anything into YouTube and get various results of helpful videos. I can't even imagine living with the internet and technology- it's fast and free!!
