currently coveting: upholstered anything

Gigi and I, along with several of you, often see and buy older, inexpensive pieces of upholstered furniture with strong desires to reinvent them using new fabric.   

In talking with a friend who recently picked up one such piece, our conversation turned to the cost of reupholstery.  The cost of reupholstery labor along with the cost of fabric can turn your thrifty find into an expensive project.  Before Gigi and I buy, we use these references to calculate the cost of fabric.    

Hopefully these images will help you to know about how much fabric your next reupholstery project will set you back...  

And C, I can't wait to see your pretty piece after you've made it over!
