Great Fabric Cheatsheet

I saw this on Pinterest the other day and thought it was such a brilliant tool to get an idea of how much fabric is needed for various furniture pieces...

Great chart

 So now when you find that awesome and dirt cheap piece on Craigslist...

You know you need about 5 yards of fabric...


To make it look like this...

BHG I have to say it again? WHY BUY NEW? 


  1. Thanks for the cheat sheet...very handy! I also am a huge fan of CL but am having trouble finding a good, reasonably priced upholsterer in the DC area. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks! Maureen

  2. What a transformation, Danielle!

  3. I will save this cheat sheet, great to have, no need to call upholsterer for quotes all the time, and yes no need to buy new! Happy Mother's Day!!! You got my text right? xxxx
