Apartment Therapy - Upholstery Case Studies

When people find out I work in the interior design industry they immediately ask for my advice on anything and everything related to their home. 

The number one question usually starts off with: "I have this {fill in the blank} that I want to have reupholstered....Is it worth it??" Unfortunately I never have a definite answer! 
It depends on quite a few factors - Was the item valuable to begin with? How much is the labor going to cost you? How much is the fabric? Does it need re-finishing? etc..

Apartment Therapy just covered this topic - check it out for real-life examples on what people paid for their re-upholstery projects.
