Bought this chair at a local sale for only $10. With the addition of some ASCP and drop cloth fabric, it's now a beauty

  • Rita McKenzie - I paid someone to do it and it cost $250. There's no way I could have done the reupholstering myself. And yes, it's the fabric that you put on the floor for painting - it looks like real linen at a fraction of the cost.

      @Heather (New House New Home) this is beautiful, but, i would have to tackle it myself!!!! i'd say, no thank you. that's way out of my price range & get out the glue gun!!!
