Updating old furniture with new fabric and reupholstering is a great way to give your stuff a new look and relatively inexpensively. If you pick the fabric yourself, it's a great DIY project that you can take credit for, and most places sell fabric for much less than buying it full price at a furniture store. This particular ottoman is made by TooFriendsShop for just $180.
These curtains, from Urban Outfitters, are just $34. What a steal! I love the cute graphic print, and the colors work in a wide variety of rooms, with paint colors that are cool or warm. It would be great for an office, stationary room or a room that needs creativity.
This chair, which I think is fabulous is $600 from buythehourinteriors on I love the mix of the patterns between the chair and the pillows. A great way to update an old chair is not only to reupholster it, but update it with a throw and/or some great pillows. The mix of patterns only keeps it updated to modern design today.
