Frugal Friday: Wingback Chair Before and After

Happy Friday All!

Today I am so happy to finally share with you the before and after of a wingback chair I had slipcovered for a friend!

We hunted for the perfect wingback with the curvy legs for a few weeks before I came across this gem at a local thrift store for $19. I knew it was perfect and would look awesome once we had it redone.
After several weeks of fabric hunting we came across a fabric and then about two weeks later this little lady was ready for her debut!

Can you even believe it's the same chair? Let alone slipcovered not reupholstered, which mind you is half the price and washable.

Here she is all styled up!
Stay tuned next week for a few more sneak peeks of this room and hopefully before too long the full review!

Head over to The Shabby Nest to see what other inspiring projects other bloggers have come up with this week!



  1. I can't believe that it is a slipcover - it's so tight and not sloppy!

  2. wow that is an amazing slipcover job! I love the fabric also!

  3. Thanks! She did a great job with all the zippers and it velcros to the bottom of the chair.

  4. Wow! It's gorgeous! Love that fabric and it looks reupholstered! Beautiful job on the slipcover! :)

  5. Holy Moley..I can't believe that is a slip cover!! How's about a tutorial on that!! I am seriously impressed. Wow!

  6. I'm really impressed and would love to know how it's done. So I second the request for a tutorial!

    1. I wish this was something I could do myself. I had it done by a professional!
