Buyer's Remorse

I made an unscheduled trip to Goodwill .  I made an unplanned purchase.  I may have made a mistake.   I bought these chairs and ottoman thinking I could reupholster them.  WHAT!  This is a classic case of having too much confidence.  I think I have buyer's remorse.  But I am determined to try something new. I need some ideas. Do you think I could just use scissors and a glue gun to transform these? Who knows, I might just buy a slip cover for them.

But on the other hand, Shea was very pleased with her .50 purchase.

  1. Oh man.... this brings back memories. I had two wing backs in my garage for over a year. I desperately wanted to cover them but realized I had no space and they were intimidating. I finally sold them, but I can't wait to see what you do!

  2. Ohh... I am jealous, I want them! No ideas on how to glue a slipcover.. Susie Harris did a cool 'slipcover for dummies' post the other day that may give you some ideas:

    Good Luck though!!!
