£24 off eBay and very grubby non washable covers.

Went to you tube for a tub chair covering vid and am so proud of myself grin

Very nice! Wish I had upholstering skills.

It was so easy. I am not particularly good at all! You just remove the old covers and use each section as a template. Took ages getting the staples out and you need a staple gun, but you can make any nice blending colour choice. This matches our living room. Easy peasey, honestly!

Can't link on ipad blush

I used fabric to blend with the rug and have some silky green fabric to make a cushion which is a good match too! [smile[

Love it.

Sneeze, thanks for this.

I've got a Laura Ashley chair that I've had for about 18 years and love.

The covers are absolutely filthy, and I can't afford to get it re-covered - it also looks a bit rubbish with a throw.

You've inspired me to cover it when I get back from my hols! grin
