Reupholstering?



image via anthropologie

I am contemplating taking on the challenge of reupholstering a wingback chair I have.  I know - SCARY!  This chair was given to us for free and has just been sitting in a corner out of the way since it is a nasty pink color - a mix between rose and bubble gum pink - and doesn't match anything we have.

I've found quite a few tutorials on how to go about reupholstering, but wanted to know if there were any tricks or tips any of y'all have?  Maybe you've found a blog that has great instructions?  Any help would be greaty appreciated!

I've also found a few fabric websites, too - do y'all have any favorites?  I don't want to spend a ton on fabric so I need something reasonably priced since it will take about 7 yards to reupholster the chair.  Hmmm...Should I go bold a do a print?  Or keep it simple and do a solid color?  Decisions, decisions...

P.S. - Did you notice that cute little new badge on my sidebar?  That's right.  I'm a Stella & Dot Stylist :)
