I am always looking around my house and thinking I need new furniture. I realized a few pieces are actually nice structurally but needed to be refreshed. I checked pricing around town on re-upholstering an old small vanity chair that I found in a tag sale long ago. Old Fashion was not the cheapest, but I visited the facility on Central and thought they did quality work. I found my own fabric and brought it in with the chair. The job took less than one week and it looked like a completely new chair. It had been completely stripped of old fabric and foam and new foam and fabric sculpted on (great detail work in the folds, buttons and pleats).
I was so impressed, I'm taking some old loveseats in next. Who needs new furniture? Check cost of re-upholstering first.
