Inexpensively Recovering a Recliner

I have a high-back recliner with the leg rest that extends outwards. It is a clean-side model (not Batwings). I'd love to update it with a cheap home-made covering. Has anyone used sheets to cover the arms, back, seat, and leg rest? I have a staple gun. Any inspiration would be appreciated. Thank you.

I'm sure you can find a pattern on the internet to cover your recliner! Or might check in a Jo Ann's store where they have fabrics, patterns for everything, etc. Good Luck!

I think I would use something with more heft than a sheet. Why not try using a canvas drop cloth? You can buy them for 10 to 20 dollars. The main thing to watch for with them is that sometimes they have a seam running up the center of them. I found that out when I made drapes. You also have to buy enough at one time to do your project as dye lots may differ.
