I knew it wasn’t going to stay in there but I wanted to see what it would look like and second I wanted to buy myself some time to figure out how to get it into our basement family room/man-cave.
– pliers – staple remover – rubber mallet – circular saw – hammer – wood screws of different lengths – metal connector plates/tie plates – liquid nails – staples – staple gun – power drill – shop vac
I decided to peel the fabric from the bottom up and then cut the bottom half of the pieces off. So I turned the sofa upside-down, removed the feet, and then all the staples on the bottom.
Then I removed the upholstery nails and staples of the arm piece halfway up the sofa.
I then marked the cut all the way around the bottom as you can see. Make sure you measure more than once to ensure that the larger piece will fit through your door frame.
