Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: Welcome to Camp Freckle!
Here's a closer look at the results. Items like the dresses shown above have a new life as fun seat cushions. The Frecklewonder blog has details on how she pulled this off.
Re-cover chairs with fun prints. Another great use for your vintage '60s fabric finds is to refresh a set of dining chairs. It's fine to mix up the prints and colors; choosing patterns of a similar scale will keep the look cohesive.
Reupholster with vintage cloth. This clever homeowner went through her stacks of retro clothes and gave her dining room chairs a lively makeover.See the rest of this home
