Nesting... with a skill saw
Our big chair-and-a-half-chaise is the favorite chair in our family room but I have hated the ugly tan fabric and the big old rounded arms. I've wanted to recover it forever and the nesting instinct finally made me do it. Holy mother of staple guns it was a project. But I love how it turned out.

Here it is as I started ripping the fabric off and decided to snap a quick "before" photo.

I was going to have a neighbor come over and saw the arms off and rebuild them square but he couldn't come for a few days and we all know how patient I am. Mind you I've never used a skill saw, but I went and purchased my own, bought some extra wood and a few hours later I had sawed off the arms and rebuilt them nice and square. It wasn't the smartest thing I've ever done, you know, safety wise, but I dare say they turned out lovely.
