About 3 years ago, I bought an old armchair on craigslist for 20 bucks. Back then I re-upholstered it with some colorful flowery patterned fabric. Now I’m thinking, it is time for a change again, so I upholstered it yet another time, this time I used bold black and white striped fabric from Ikea.
The result after a day of painful re-upholstering:
Another upholstery project I really like is Jenny’s purple headboard….awesome! I want one;-) And if i found a sofa like this for $25 I would jump up and down for days! And then the great upholstery and choice of fabric, love it!
See ya soon!
Great result, Sibylle! Gives me a couple of ideas for the 6 meters of this same IKEA fabric laying around

Madre mia;-) yo hablo y escribo espanol muy mal! But thank you so much , glad you like it:-)
And i didnt do the wallpaper:-)
Love the re-do! Kind of reminds me of beetlejuice
Looks fabulous!! I’d like to do a big racing stripe on a similar chair I have–just ONE big contrast stripe down the center, of a different fabric applied. I wish I were pro at upholstery. =( Still learning! Bought a book!

I love the fabric…amazing look. You are going to hate me… I was given the couch that would match that chair exactly. I love it and want to do the reupholster on it but very scared to attempt it. I don’t want to make a mess of a wonderful couch. You did a great job, very crisp and professional looking. You should do a tutorial. I see lots of tutorials but not with this shape or type of furniture which in my opinion is unique. Just found your site and am enjoying it.
you can try this tutorial;-) http://www.remodelaholic.com/2011/08/wingback-chair-reupholstering-tutorial/

I believe anything good is worth giving away – that includes ideas, art, beauty, design – I believe it should be shared. I believe art and creativity should be generous.
