I've had a hankerin' to go garage sale-ing lately, and I was able to talk my husband into joining me several saturdays ago. I found one that had the chair on the left with a sign saying it was $10. I thought that it had good "bones", because I like the structure and thought that it had potential.
I get a little closer and realize that the pink stripes are just a part of a terrible slipcover! Not only do I have a pattern if I ever want to make another slipcover, but the green is so fun! The color is wonderful, but the fabric is faded in some areas. I am going to undertake reupholstering it myself. We'll see how it goes.
I went fabric shopping to start the process of reupholstering. I nearly died finding out how expensive decent furniture fabric was! $50-$300 per yard? I paid $10 for this chair, and it will cost me that much just for fabric? I haven't made a decision as to what I am doing to make it awesome, but something will be done.
Ideas for the chair? Fabric suggestions? I'd love to hear from you!
