This is one of my favorite saves! Many times a chair or a sofa is still in great condition and not out of style but the cording around the edges is frayed and thin as this is the area that gets the most wear. Instead of tossing it or reupholstering it, try replacing the cording with some brush fringe. Not only will you save yourself a LOT of money but you will add a cool designer accent. Many times I do this even when we are starting from scratch. I absolutely love this look. Whether you pick a matching color or be daring and pick a contrasting (even mingled!) fringe, I think you will be delighted with the outcome. Now since you have saved all that money, why don’t you use some of it for a few new accessories to help with the update?! A new lamp, piece of art or just a couple of throw pillows will freshen things up. Ok now, go inspect that cording!!!!
Happy Spring!!! ele
