Sew Pretty

Some of my recent projects have taught me that reupholstering is not an easy task.  It takes a lot of precision and patience.  I suppose that's why most people shell out hundreds of dollars to have professional upholsterers re-do their furniture. But what if you don't have the money to spend on reupholstering?  What's the next best way to change the look of your furniture?  The answer lies in slipcovers.

Centsational Girl, Kate, provides the perfect example of a couch slipcover makeover.  Since Kate sewed the linen slipcover herself, she only spent a mere $30, allowing her to splurge on a pretty Pottery Barn pillow to accompany the new look.
