Don't toss that old chair or sofa; consider reupholstering. All these chairs cost between $200 and $360 to re-cover, plus the cost of fabric. This chaise was a bargain at $40. It had great lines, simple rolled arms, and was in overall good shape. The decision to reupholster was a no-brainer. To update the look, a fun geometric print with vibrant colors was selected. A skirt was removed, leaving exposed legs, which were painted yellow.
