Reupholstering a chair is easy. The staple gun is your friend.
What did you do last weekend? I reupholstered the cat's favorite scratching post this chair to match the new vintage anatomy poster, using these instructions, and I'm very happy with it.
It was so cheap and easy: Just remove the cushion and staple the fabric into place. I used a $6 remnant from the bargain bin. It's so simple, you can do it while you watch Community, and it will completely change the look of the room.
Two years ago, this same spot looked like this. I was so excited to have red walls in my first home, but it hurts my eyes to look at them now. What's the craziest color you ever painted your walls?
