Antique caned settee: SOLD

I can sell this as is or I can upgrade the settee you see here to meet your specifications. My mother owned an antique shop in Erie and I learned furniture repair and reupholstering in her shop while I was in high school.

cane sofa (orig)

This is how it looks now. It has faded, stained fabric which I planned to replace with similar gold fabric. I bought the fabric and took apart one back cushion and one bolster pillow so I could make a pattern and cut new fabric. That's as far as I got.
There is caning along the side arms and the back, but there are several damaged areas that will need to be patched and stained to match. See photo below.

Option A. $100
Sell it as is.

Option B. $450
1. Remove the stained, faded, outdated fabric and make a pattern.
2. Make inner cushion covers (liners) so outer fabric cover can be removed for washing.
3. Add a thin layer of padding to all the cushions.
4. Combine the 3 back cushions into one long cushion.
5. Patch and stain the broken caning to match. (Professional re-caning of back and 2 sides would be expensive.)
