My husband has his grandmother's rocking chair. I've shown it before. I made a pillow for the back of the chair, and covered the seat a couple of years ago, using fabric I had in my stash. It was a brown corduroy, and served the purpose, although it wasn't very pretty. Lately, I had started laying a quilt or throw over it to hide the brown.
So with a few yards of fabric, I made a pillow cover for the back, covered the seat, recovered the small foot stool, recovered the vanity bench in the bath, made a set of tiers for the bath, and made 2 envelope pillow covers for two throw pillows.
Here is the chair makeover:
(The painted fire screen is hiding MANY cords, and my gallon of water for my BiPap machine). :)
Here is the little stool that I recovered. It had the cover below prior to the makeover.

I made curtains for the window over the bath tub out of the same fabric.
I covered the two unmatching throw pillows for the bedroom.
I've recently updated the sunroom for $6.00 by buying fabric at the consignment shop. You might remember that here. If not, check it out!
Here's a peak!!
For a frugal makeover, update your accessories with new fabric.
