How can I make affordable arm covers for new chairs?
I’m redoing my living room and giving it a completely new, slightly glam/modern farmhouse look. Neutral Color scheme will be white, grays, a little black, touches of weathered gold, with teal blue accents I can switch out to other colors when desired. I’ve ordered two upholstered chairs (see pics) and want them to have arm covers. The matching fabric from the manufacturer is $60 per yard and I’m told I’ll need 2 yards for the arm coverings. The manufacturer doesn’t make arm covers so I’d need to order the fabric and then pay someone to sew the arm covers(I don’t sew). $120 for fabric, plus the labor to have the arm covers completed, sure seems expensive to me. I don’t want to put doilies on the arms though.Any suggestions how I can save $$ on these arm covers, but still retain the simple beauty of these chairs? Alternative/creative ideas welcome. Thank you.
