DIY Re-Upholstery Tips

To re-upholster your chairs and ottoman you are going to need some fabric.

We found this fabulous red and orange fat quarter on Etsy for $4.99. It is 18″x22″ and is perfect for covering a chair or two.

We also love this feminine pink and brown bird fabric also $4.99. It is also a fat quarter and a unique way to cover your chairs.
