Just like a wardrobe, your furniture needs an occasional update. An easy way to make that change is by using upholstery. Get creative, and go beyond the expected sofas and chairs. Almost any piece is a candidate for an upholstery makeover. We chose inexpensive burlap because of its forgiving nature--if you need to remove a nailhead, it won't snag or leave a mark. Also, solid fabrics are easier to work with than patterns because you don't need to worry about centering a design.
