I tried my hand at reupholstering. I have often done items that just require a few staples that are hidden underneath, but never something that would be fully exposed. Luckily it didn't turn out too badly, so now I will be keeping my eyes peeled for more furniture, and not just of the wood type:)
Sorry this is the only BEFORE photo of the torn back
This chair was a $6 yard sale find, and the ottoman was brought to me at the store. I bought it for $4. Not a bad set for $10! I scored the new fabric on the clearance rack and was ready to roll.
