Actually, not in my pants, but from pants.  I just think "in my pants" is funny.    Cheesy

I couldn't afford the $150 a yard vintage style upholstery appropriate for this mid-century chair my husband and I were given by some friends, so I sewed a cover from pieces of linen pants (and a shirt) from the Goodwill.

Sorry, no "before" but you can imagine old, torn, stained upholstery.

After:



And yes, I make everything - clothes, upholstery, art -  from old pants from the Goodwill!   Tongue

People really underestimate the power of pants from Goodwill.  This looks great!

I love things in my pants! I mean things made from pants...Smiley

Absolutely *wants* . . totally wisting this chair right now. I'm always on the look out for chairs with beautiful details just like this one! Sometimes the best things in life really truly are free.

Looks like you pulled it from a magazine. I love me a good thrift store.
