Before
Here's a How To project without much "doing." Reupholstering a chair is something you can definitely handle, but when it comes to a tufted chairs things get tricky. But never fear, outsourcing is here! The results after the jump…
After!
This chair was purchased on Craigslist for just $75. The customer found the turquoise fabric herself and then brought the chair to Pillow Perfection, an upholsterer located in Brooklyn. The work was done for $400 and that included re-cushioning the seat and replacing the springs. Looks like quality work that will last a lifetime.

Here's a breakdown of the costs: Chair − $75 Fabric − $40 Upholstery − $400 Total − $515 Via: The Haystack Needle Images: Charlotte Jenks Lewis
