Claire picked up a great find and now she has a question for the crowd: Look at my latest find! I got it from Urban Ore in Berkeley. 2 Danish Modern Chairs for $8.50, its going to be my first upholstery project. The wood is in good condition, no major scratches just needs to be cleaned. I'm not planning to paint, just re-fabric...

Its going in my living room, to go with my olive green mod chaise. Do you guys have any suggestions to the kind of fabric I should go with? Something that is easy to work with?

Please share your advice and suggestions with Claire in the comments...thanks!
