If you are thinking of redecorating or moving but don't want to get rid of your beloved furniture, then reupholstering or slipcovers are perfect for you. This article will explore some of the ways of giving your living room a facelift without having to spend thousands on brand new furniture.
Many of us get very attached to our furniture. Let's face it; you spent way too long looking for something that fits your style just to throw it out a year later when you redecorate or getting ready for a party. Fortunately, there are a couple of things you can do that doesn't require a large dumpster. You can either re-upholster it or you can get a slipcover.
Reupholstering your furniture is easy. You can go online and find a fabric you like. When you narrowed your choices down to a select few, you can request samples and see how the actual fabric looks like in your living room. Here's an easy chair makeover you can do in an afternoon.
Slipcovers are even easier! A slipcover is a fitted piece of fabric that you can just pull over your furniture. They are a great way to protect your furniture from everyday use and it gives your room a great new look.

Save yourself some time and money by giving your furniture a brand new look by reupholstering it or by getting a slipcover.
