When I saw this quick little cheat sheet posted on my Instagram feed I just had to share!! One of my fav bloggers and part of my ‘insta-family’, Cheryl of the blog Dwell by Cheryl, posted this after seeing her go-to upholstery guy getting fed up answering this over-asked question- “How many yards will it take to recover this chair?…”
Isn’t it great!?! I now have this baby saved to my phone so I can get a quick understanding on cost when I’m thrifting at my favorite vintage stores. Thanks for sharing Cheryl!
As always, no post should go without some eye candy, so here are a few fun reupholstery before and afters:
These are all from the amazing designers at Chairloom. Check them out for more cool reupholstery projects.
This funky gem is from my always favorite before/after posts by apartment therapy.
You know I love me an Eames era chair…though this is not a real one. Still cute though with its sassy denim chevron from the blog crafnik.
This little guy is so classic with its clean lines and turned legs, I love the graphic pattern Peg and Liz from Just About Home blog used to recover the chair. This would add some punch to any room without being overwhelming.
I couldn’t find the before shot of this cute pair, but I still had to share these groovy office chairs. Emily Henderson is one of my favorite designers, these are vintage chairs she found and recovered for her color savvy client Oh Joy Studio. The combo tweed/plaid with the solid is so fun!
Happy hunting and reupholstering guys!
