The sew factor of this reupholstery project is zero. To begin, turn the chair over and unscrew the seat cushion. Remove the old covering, replace the foam batting if necessary, and recover the cushion by pulling the new fabric taut along all sides while securing with staples. Take the rehab a step further by applying a fresh, colorful coat of paint before reattaching the cushion.

Not all no-sew projects need to be permanent fixtures in your house. This collapsible reading nook for kids is made from wooden poles, scrap fabric, twine, and glue. While you might need to adjust the living room seating to accommodate it, there's no stitching required. The Handmade Home has the tutorial.
