If you are handy remove the front fabric. You will have to take off the dust under fabric but loosen the staples from the couch fabric or you may not have to do this. Just remove the under fabric and hopefully you will see the frame and nail another board behind it to "splint" the broken board and replace the fabric (04/25/2006)
You can reinforce a broken frame with metal straps, available from any hardware store. They are about 4 inches long, with screw holes at each end. Sometimes, they come with screws.
All you do is push the wood back into place, then screw the straps on the face of the wood, where they won't show. Use two of them, spaced about an inch apart. (04/25/2006)
