Fresh Ideas for the New Year
5 Chair Makeovers
See how five Cottage Living staffers took their tattered, secondhand seats down the road to re-covery.
To give them new life, she chose a versatile fabric that will match any room in her house. "I upholster everything in linen so that I don't have to commit to color," she says.
She found a pair of vintage grain sacks for the fronts of the chairs and coordinated a basic linen for the sides and back. Her signature monogram adds a personal touch.
