Reupholster or Buy New?
I posted earlier about pricing two new chairs. These would be replacement chairs for the exact same two I currently own. The reason for the replacement is that my cats have really destroyed the chairs with their scratching. The chairs work perfectly in my space, so I am not inclined to look for something different.
My question concerns getting them reupholstered versus tossing them and buying new. The cats have scratched the material, but the chairs themselves are in fine shape. Having never had anything reupholstered, I wonder whether the cost might be worth it vs. buying new (although I've heard it can be just as expensive). Do upholsterers make house calls to give estimates, or how would I begin to find out?
To replace the two chairs would run around $1400. I've attached the link that shows the chair and fabric I want. Thanks!
