I found this quaint little yellow chair at a Salvation Army for $10 a few years ago. I had initially purchased it for the kids’ room and while the sunny yellow fabric was cheerful, it wasn’t in the best shape, and eventually ended up in a corner in my bedroom. When my friend Emily told me she’d found somebody that did reasonably priced reupholstery jobs, I finally decided to have it redone.
I scored some delightful quilted bumblebee fabric for 50% off at Michael Levines in downtown LA. I only needed 3 yards, so I couldn’t have scored a better deal at $20 per yard for this reversible fabric that was originally $40 per yard (uh yeah, I know a little math, especially when it comes to $$). I’m beside myself at how beautiful it came out … Check out the Before and Afters below!
