I’ve been eager to try upholstery for quite a while, but I’m still a few DIY books and materials away from any serious projects. The closest I’ve gotten is my “orange chair”: http://megmadethis.blogspot.com/2010/01/apartment-therapy.html , which is a combination upholstery/slipcover project, and even that I’m itching to re-do once I move in August.
Desk chair upholstery, however, is a cheap and simple way to change up a room and try out some simple upholstery techniques without committing to a big project. And to match my new desk chair, which goes in my bedroom, I made pillow cases from the same fabric for the bed.
