Title: Ottoman
Post by: SteveA on October 24, 2017, 10:36:20 AM

An account asked me to make a service call to fill the corner of the attached top cushion of an ottoman.  I'm bringing the regulator but is there a way to access the corner if I remove the dust cover or not even possible ?

You could remove the dust cove and then cut a slit into the spring cover (burlap?) there may also be some type of padding you will have to rip through. This should give you access to the zipper, if there is one. The fun part will be trying to get your hand in there.

Then when finished hand sew the spring cover closed. Problem is you never know what you'll find when you take the dust cover off. If its plywood you're out of luck.

I think that it is never hard to call service
