So when we bought our house, I knew that we would need furniture, but that we would be house poor.
My solution was to buy some wing back chairs at the D.I. (It's like a Saver's or a store where people donate their used stuff.) I bought two chairs and spent $35.00 on the pair. They sat in my garage for awhile until we decided that we were done updating the house for this year.
I pulled them out and bought some fabric for $85. That was a great deal at $7 dollars a yard. I bought about 12 yards and had some leftover.
My sister had covered a couple of wing back chairs which she has featured on her blog. (A link to her blog is on my side bar.) I was super nervous because I am not a perfectionist and I didn't know what in the world I was doing. I tried watching a couple tutorials on the internet, but gave up and just dove in and figured it out as I went after my sister encouraged me too. It was trial and error, but seriously not bad at all (two days work) and super worth it!!!
1-Because I am always in workout clothes. It gives the illusion that I work out even when I don't. and
2- I was sweating as if I had worked out after doing the chairs. Sweat = workout in my book so yeah I worked out.
This picture shows the "seams" I created by hiding the staples.
