Enter Exhibit A: I found 2 of these bad boys at the local thrift store for $20 TOTAL. I know I know. It looks disgusting. Because it was. You can probably smell it through the screen. My husband was not convinced of my fabulous find. But they were $20 and very solid, sturdy and heavy!
I took quite some time looking for fabric. I wanted something that looked custom and fun, held up well and was most importantly inexpensive. I finally found this Waverly print upholstery fabric for a crazy $6.99 a yard. Enter Brian at Rocky Mountain Upholstery and my Re-upholstered Rescue now looks GORGEOUS!
It's a brand new chair folks. Now she smells like ROSES! What an extreme makeover! Not only did I spend much less by going the re-upholstery route, but I have something on a low low budget that I'm pretty sure I'm not going to see at a friends home. Can't wait to show you more pics of the room soon once a few more things are put together. I'll spare you the story of my 20 month old coloring on my cushion before I had a chance to scotch guard. Just picture a rage blackout. Interested in a similar project for your home? Let us know! Have a great weekend.
