Wow, great job!
I've been thinking about learning more about reupholstering--I have a great armchair that used to be my grandma's but my husband hates that it's covered in bright orange velvet. I don't see the problem myself. ^_^

Thanks for all the nice comments, everyone!   

If you are thinking of trying a re-upholstery project, Hobby Lobby (and other craft stores probably) has a book you can buy that shows how to re-upholster things.  I didn't read the whole thing, just parts and mainly looked at the pictures. lol

I just took the old pieces off and used them as my patterns for the new fabric, and that helps a lot.  It was much easier than I thought it would be.  Probably time for me to look for another project.... Grin
