Erin is looking for some suggestions: I got Target's Milano Espresso and Mocha chair (shown here) from a thrift store brand new for $25.00, so I couldn't pass it up. But lately I've been wanting to spruce them up by making new cushion covers and recovering the back and sides- the way this chair is put together it should be simple. I don't have many good fabric stores in my area so can anyone offer suggestions on upholstery-grade fabric I can purchase online that would look good on these chairs?

I'm up for patterns or solids in any range of colors- we don't have a set color scheme or anything yet. We will be moving and this will be among the first of our decorating projects, so i'd like to get my fabric selections then decorate from there.

Please share your suggestions for specific fabrics available online, color suggestions or any good online sources for upholstery fabric that Erin can browse through...thanks!
