Q: I've had this chair and footrest since I was 16 years old (I'm 33 now) and it belonged to my grandmother before I had it. I used to love the fact that it was such a weird shade of gold faux-velvet, but now it's becoming an eyesore. It's been through quite a few moves with me and I can't bear to get rid of it. It obviously needs to be reupholstered, but is it a project I can do on my own? I'd need step-by-step guidance. Or subquestion, if I'm not going to do it myself, I don't make a ton of money and would need to find someone who could do this project on a budget - is there a way to look for design/fabric/art students who might be interested in helping me out? Any help would be much appreciated. Sent by Jessica Editor: Leave your suggestions for Jessica in the comments - thanks! • Got a question?
