North Carolina Correction Institution for Women
All In A Day's Work - Page 2

Other inmates at the North Carolina Correctional Institution for Women work in the prison's upholstery shop. They learn to rebuild and repair furniture.

The inmates take old, donated chairs, couches and other furniture and strip each piece to the frame. The legs are stained and the furniture is rebuilt from the legs up. Inmates are taught how to cut a cushion out of foam rubber, and how to use batting to cover the frame. Next, they put on the outer covering and a skirt around the bottom of chairs and couches.

The re-upholstered furniture is donated to charity.
