From the sleekly tailored to the deliciously overdone, slipcovered furniture can set the tone for a whole room. Perhaps even better, the comparatively low cost (compared to new furniture or even professional reupholstery) means you can change looks easily, as often as you like. With basic sewing skills and a bit of patience and practice, slipcover-making skills are not difficult to master. Follow the advice of a home-furnishings professional to learn how to make various coverings--draped or fitted, streamlined or frilly, skirted or welted--for sofas, daybeds, stools, and chairs of many types. --Amy Handy
