Upholster Me, Please.

This mid-century modern rocker has major potential! I found it on craigslist and think with a new slip cover, or some upholstery in a lovely combination of Amy Butler's Nigella collection it would look just smashing. A little bit of Imperial Dark Green and then some touches of Wood Fern in Silver and Eggshell on the arms would make a cozy, comforting reading chair. And this one on craigslist swivels and has sweet tapered legs for just $40!

I love your creativity. I agree, any of those Amy Butler fabrics would be great. Do you know how to make the slip cover or reupholster it yourself? Teach me!

Hey Victoria,
Do you know a good/inexpensive upholsterer in SF?

thanks girls - i love dreaming up upholstery combos.

jen - check out Amy Butler's site for patterns on slipcovers. i too, need to learn - I can just do easy cushions with a staple gun!

julia - try
Wally's Upholstery on Geary. he does car and boat upholstery, but is supposed to be great and not too expensive for furniture, too!
