I’ve finally had the time to have my childhood chair reupholstered. This chair has been with me through the good & bad…obviously it’s had a few rough patches judging from the before pictures! I found a luscious grey wool to recover it in. The velvet that was there before was a kitty hair magnet. I also was able to bring it in to my local embroidery shop and have them add a custom monogram for just $20! It now fits in to our grey & black master bedroom. I couldn’t be happier.
Usually getting a piece reupholstered can be a little pricey, but buying the frabric & trim myself helped keep the costs down. As well as putting an ad on my local Craigslist and finding a reasonably priced reupholsterer! The work was $100, fabric was $30 and the embroidery was $20. Grand total = $150, not too bad in my opinion! Especially when considering the condition of the chair when I brought it in!

That is amazing, very gray flannel looking and it looks more tailored as well. Cannot believe the economical price of that fantastic monogram. This is a treasure!
Thanks Kevin 🙂
