To make a long story short, I don't want to pay to have the chair recovered or fixed up. I've been determined to re-upholster it myself since we got it after seeing a few online tutorials. Based on the amount of 're-pins' I've had on Pinterest for an upholstery tutorial that I stumbled upon, I figured there were lots of other people out there also interested in learning how to do this. So, without further a do, here are a few images that have caught my eye and at the bottom you'll find a few links to upholstery tutorials that make the whole process look really easy.
The first link is to Jenny's take on the job at Little Green Notebook. She's got good step-by-step instructions that look really useful and the project is divided into 5 parts.
Here's another one from The Hunted Interior. I really love the contrasting fabric on the back of this one. I'm planning on doing that on mine for sure.
