Welcoming the Wingbacks!

It's official: I'm the proud owner of a sturdy, but terribly outdated pair of wingback chairs!!! I purchased them off Craigslist for, get this, $47 (*I didn't have correct change, so I indirectly talked them down $3). They've been in the garage, where they will be steam cleaned twice. I want to have them recovered, and I've realized that the process might take a little longer than I'd hoped. Recovering furniture is frighteningly expensive. Too bad I don't have the Harry Allen piggy bank to start my wingback-recovering-savings-fund.

Here are my chairs in their current state:

Here are some of the fabrics I'm considering. Don't get your hopes up, people, it's going to be a few months- at least, but a girl can dream!!

Thoughts or opinions? Once they're recovered they will reside in our living room, which is pretty much a blank slate. I'm even repainting the room over the holidays (more on that later). What I really need to do is learn to recover furniture myself, so if anyone out there has this knowledge/skill, please feel free to impart some of it on me!!!

    Fabric Farms offers classes on how to reupholster furnitire. They also reupholster, if you do not want to do it.
