Dear AT, My friend is throwing out an IKEA Tullsta barrel chair, and I offered to take it off his hands. The only problem is that the chair is in the "natural" color and heavily stained. I know IKEA sells slipcovers for this chair, but the selection is frightfully limited and I found them to be rather boring. Is it possible to upholster this chair by myself? Any thoughts or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Christina
