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?

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.
