Before & After: Reupholstered Chaise

New House, Empty Corner

These homeowners saw this chaise's potential -- a bargain purchase at $40. It had great lines, simple rolled arms, and was in overall good shape. The decision to reupholster was a no-brainer.

Re-covering this chaise took a little more than 7 yards of fabric. The homeowners ordered an extra yard of material to be on the safe side. Depending on the pattern repeat, it often takes a little extra fabric to match the print. The repeat can be figured by measuring from a specific point in the pattern to the next identical point. Use any leftover fabric for an accent pillow in the room. Be sure to talk to your upholsterer before ordering fabric –– it can save you money.
