Surprise!

One of these things is not like the other.

Ottoman footstool was an add on that the lady must have got fabric and recovered.

She didn't tell me. I checked for bleeding on the back side of a cushion and during Pre inspection didn't think a thing about the ottoman being different.

It turned out fine but the surprise was an oh crap moment.

I had taken the picture prior to wetting it down for color comparison....

According to the book, "The Millionaire Next door" one of the traits of a closet millionaire is that they reupholster their furniture and resole their shoes. Mark, did you check her shoes to determine her net worth?

Hey, I resole my shoes. I gotta go check my bank account.

The ottoman is pretty easy to re upholster.

Getting hold of the fabric is impossible.

These situations are challenging when a piece of furniture has zero resale value and might cost hundreds to rectify.
