Thanks for the compliments. I spent about $600 I think. might be a little more but I would hve to check my records. the foam is where most of the cost is. I tried to use old foam but the foam was 3 inches and the foam place standard foam was 4 inches. so I replace all the cushions with 4 inch. I was able to shorten the couch foam and reuse that. The other big cost was the fabric.
Now that I know what I wanted to do it would probably be a 3 day job. It took me almost a week because I had no idea what I really wanted to do and when I would figure out what I wanted to do I would have to goto the store and buy things, so my time was not used very efficent. Also the company I worked for closed so I was jobless and this helped me stay busy while trying to find another job. It's amazing what you can do with a little time and a credit card.
I would have no problems doing this for others. The hardest thing to do was just figuring out what i wanted. I gutted it then my father and I threw ideas at each other until we came up with what you see here. I thought I wanted a U-shaped dinette and that is why I started all of this, but this worked for me and my family much better.
