Apartment Therapy reader Keelin wants advice on reupholstering two 1960s slipper chairs: "Hi ATDC!
I have two identical and fabulous slipper chairs that I believe date to the 1960s. The problem is they are a sort of rusty reddish orange, wide wale corduroy fabric — let's just say that's not my style. I have to admit, the color has grown on me since I bought the chairs, but everything else in my apartment is shades of blue and gray and I'd like to reupholster in a more mellow, earthy shade. I'd love to find an inexpensive and reliable upholsterer in the DC metro area (preferably one who will pick up and deliver since I am car-less). Any one have suggestions? Thanks! Keelin"
We love the current color and fabric, but can understand the need to make a change. You might try talking to the folks at Yuppie Decor to see if their shop can help you with this project. We've also heard good things about the G Street Fabrics team- though we recommend waiting until they are having a sale to help cut costs on your project. Do any readers have advice for Keelin?
