Does anyone know how to 'reupholster' a fabric couch to leather or if that's something upholstery businesses do?

Reupholstering a couch with leather will be pricey done by professionals, but is certainly doable! I wouldn't attempt yourself as leather can be tricky to work with, and reupholstering such a large furniture piece will not be as easy as it seems!

I'm not a do it yourselfer to begin with but there's no way I would attempt that huge project. Unless you have some upholstery experience I wouldn't even attempt it; I'd call in a professional or just buy it new (or gently used). Good luck whatever you decide to do!

Oh I wasn't gunna attempt it myself I just wasn't sure if it was even possible. It's only a year old but with two rotties and one that she's excessively year round I just can't keep up with the hair on the couch

Good Question - I'll be curious to hear if you find someone to do it. I've never even considered the possibility!

I'd go to a professional for sure. It'll be pricey though.

If you do get leather, make sure it's the real stuff and not a look alike. We purchased a "leather" couch and after about a year, we started noticing patches of color fading and it's now cracking in ways real leather never would. If you can, purchase the leather yourself from a fabric store if you're going to have it reupholstered. If you ever buy from a furniture store, get the extra warranty. We made the mistake of not getting it and after the one year free warranty was over, we couldn't take it back.
