Chair Rehab

Here's the chair that will eventually match the computer desk!
I bought it at a garage sale several years ago and painted it, which was a bad idea, since it did have somewhat nice wood. But that's history, and it's not nice enough to refinish, so I'm painting it again!

Here it is all painted, but something's missing...
(aside from the seat.)

that's better!

A while ago, I went to Hobby Lobby to get some fabric and foam to make a nice seat. But the foam was going to cost a minimum of $15 for the thickness I wanted...this chair is not worth $15.
So, I improvised and used a very old and yucky looking pillow for the cushion.

Then I waited a long time for someone who owns a staple gun to visit us, as I was forbidden to buy one only for this project. And this past weekend, Seth's parents brought me theirs to use!

When I was ready to upholster my seat, I realized that the cut of fabric I bought was a little too short. So, I had to go buy more.

But, I finally bought some that mostly matches in the right size and finished it today!



  1. This looks great!!! You did a terrific job. Love the flowers and bright colors:)

  2. That fabric is sooo cute. Maddie would love that chair. Very nice job.
