My DH and I decided we needed to recover the dining room chairs for our new color scheme.  Quote from the furniture store for a recover was $200 per cushion.  We drove down to the city to Calico Corners and picked up an 8 yard remnant that was discounted to $50 for 8 yards.  We only used 2 yards.  That's $6.25 per yard at $12.50 for all four chairs, with 6 yards of fabric left over for curtains, pillows, and a tablecloth or runner.

I have an antique chair I plan on re-upholstering soon. There are already at least 3 layers of fabric on the chair, so I will be removing those. The actual padding on this chair is sort of like horse-hair (ick!), so I was wondering if you had to replace your chair padding? If so, what did you replace it with? I'm thinking I could try either heavy quilt batting (the chair will be seldom used), or a thin piece of foam.  Any suggestions?  Thanks!
