(See how much my kittys have enjoyed to top and side edges of it?)
LAST summer I went searching for a new desk chair and couldn't find one that I liked well enough to spend a chunk of money on. Then, LAST SUMMER I found this upholstery fabric for 2.97 per yard at Wal-Mart. I thought it might work for covering this ugly chair so because it was so cheap, I bought the whole dang bolt. I think I spent about 24 dollars. A year later, I finally buckled down and decided to see if I could do this. It was pretty easy and I can't believe I procrastinated for a whole year to do this. It done in two sections. The backrest is simply layered over, tucked and slip-stitched with heavy duty button thread along the sides and lower edge. And the seat is attached with a staple gun all along the under-side. For the money I spent, I'm pretty happy with it. And I still have plenty of fabric left to re-do my counter stools too. :)
Many of my "growing up" years were spent on the west coast beaches of Oceanside in San Diego County, CA and I love all beachy things (especially seashells). Now I live in New Mexico, (lots of sand, but no ocean). I totally love creating with color! I'm married to the best guy ever and I am a mom to 3 really great boys who are quickly growing into superb young men right before my very eyes!
