how to reupholster a vintage hassock

I’m very proud of this one. As I said at the beginning, this was a bit of a “scary project” for me, a stretch beyond what I’ve done before. But in the end, I didn’t have too much to worry about. It took some time, effort, and patience, but now it’s all done and I learned a lot of new tricks. I hope I’ve done a good job relaying those new tricks on to you!

My hassock reupholstery began with the most fun part: demolition. My goal was to disassemble this guy in an intelligent way so I could remake it. I had to be careful, but since I would be starting over from scratch, I didn’t have to be too careful. That was a nice balance for me.

I started by removing the legs from the base. Each wooden leg was screwed into a metal plate, which was attached to the hassock’s base with 3 screws.
