The total cost for the material to cover the cushions on all 12 chairs was approximately $85. Using the 60% off coupons and doing a few at a time saved my sanity. If you have new chairs with plastic on them, I would recommend NOT covering over the plastic. When I did that ten years ago, I thought it would allow me to someday use the original fabric if I wanted to. I ended up not liking the original fabric anyway and the squeaky sound when people sat in the chairs was annoying. I would strip everything off and just staple on the new fabric at the outset.
Here are my dining room chairs (against the newly painted and not yellow anymore wall):
