A friend bought some new living room furniture, so I have a reading chair now! The chair was well loved in its previous home, and I will be slip covering it for now. I may eventually look into what it will cost to reupholster it. The frugal websites I have visited claim that you can reupholster it yourself if you are really careful. I have not sewn since I was in junior high, so that is not an option for me right now. I am posting a picture to show my Mom what I was talking about. I was able to get her decorating advice over the phone.
