    I’ve looked at quite a few upholstery books since I don’t have any places nearby that teach upholstery. This one by far is my favorite. Reasons I prefer this book above the rest:

    The author covers enough different styles of furniture so that you can tackle anything – and shows you how to determine which instructions would be best in her book for different pieces of furniture.

    The upholstery lingo isn’t over my head. This is a book that will help the beginner, intermediate and advanced. I feel like I don’t need to look anywhere else to learn how to reupholster. She is truly an expert, but remembers how it was to be a beginner.

    Many upholstery books I look at seem very dated. They use techniques that aren’t current – from what I’ve seen on blogs and youtube videos. The author combines more modern techniques (using foam and pneumatic stapler) with techniques that will help your piece of furniture stand the test of time.

    Her style is lovely. Very inspirational. Combines traditional, vintage with a modern flair.

    Great pictures and instructions. High quality book (even has a few book marks built in).

    If you’re considering buying any upholstery book…you don’t need to look any further. The only reason you wouldn’t need to buy this book is if you lived in Austin, TX and could take a class from her personally.

    I’m certainly not the most creative person in the world, but even I can follow the instructions in this book. Amanda takes the intimidating art of upholstery and makes it completely accessible to the beginning upholsterer and DIYer. This book is for sure on my Christmas list.

    Must Have Upholstery Guide, December 9, 2013

    I’ve been a huge fan of Amanda Brown of Spruce Upholstery for a long time and was thrilled when I found out she was coming out with a step-by-step guide! I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the book and it completely lived up to my expectations … aesthetically beautiful from cover to cover and filled with step-by-step visual instructions on how to complete any project. They even include a handy color-coded guide on mixing and matching design elements to cover any possibility.

    I absorbed the book for a full week before getting started on a project I’ve had in mind for a while. Once I did, I found the project to be less daunting than I expected because of Amanda’s wonderful writing and guidance. Not so sure you have the time or desire to reupholster your own furniture? “Spruce. A Step-by-Step Guide to Upholstery and Design” is still an incredible guide for educating yourself on developing an eye for the right piece of furniture to have professionally done as well as the fabric types and scale necessary to create your dream piece. Plus, it’s full of inspirational eye candy. And you can impress your friends by having a DIY upholstery book casually left out on the coffee table!
