If you have the time and are somewhat crafty, the cheapest way to go is to sign up for a Adult Education Class at one of the High Schools or similar class at a Technical College. I signed up for a night class at a San Antonio, Texas high school. Their shop was equipped with all the upholstery tools necessary. The instructor was very knowledgeable and helpful. From a bare frame I redid a rocker which had inner springs and horse hair stuffing. All it cost me was tuition (about $100 and a remnant of silk upholstery material that I found at a store that was in foreclosure.) There was a guy in the class who was into his 2nd semester, reupholstering a full-size couch.
