get the chair reupholstered by a professional instead of making a slipcover!
What I did not tell you before is that the wingback chair is a recliner. I had planned to wire it closed so it couldn't recline, and slipcover it. And that's why I bought the ottoman in the first place; who needs a recliner when you have a nice comfy ottoman upon which to rest your feet?
Well, apparently my husband and sons do. When I revealed the details of my plan, suddenly the chair they hardly ever used, became their favorite spot to relax and it had to recline. I gave in, thought briefly about learning to reupholster, then made a phone call. The chair was delivered today and I love it.
Recline or use the ottoman or do both. We aim to please. The cat likes it too.
