reupholstery change from fabric to leather

olive51August 15, 2011

I need to have two chairs reupholstered and would like to do leather, Does it make more sense to purchase new leather chairs--meaning does the cost of buying quality leather by the yard and adding that to the labor cost make it prohibitive? I could purchase new leather chairs and re-do the existing ones in fabric for another room.....any thoughts?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Leather (real) is not sold by the yard; it's sold by the hide.

Sit down before getting a quote on this.

Unless it's an extraordinarily good chair to begin with, I'm guessing yes, it's going to be cost prohibitive.
