Three of our editors give their old chairs an overhaul -- and learn a few valuable lessons along the way.
The Big Reveal
Based on the standard upholstery chart, I ordered 8 yards of fabric, which I was assured was more than enough to cover my club chair. Well, I guess my chair is a little large for its age because a day after dropping it off to have the slipcover made, I got a call telling me I would another 2 yards.
Lesson earned: Always order more fabric than you think you need. Any leftover fabric can be used to make an accent pillow.
