71  First Craftster Challenge Chair Redo!!! in CHALLENGE 45 ENTRIES by jennilocker on: December 02, 2009 01:42:55 PM
I was super excited about this craft project so I went to our local Goodwill and found this chair for $4.50 and then picked up the material at Wal-Mart for $2.00.  I already had the paint so the total cost of the chair was $6.50. 
As you can see the chair was in great shape structurally but needed some real cosmetic TLC.  It had already been recovered once before...that explains the mismatched top and bottom!

I loved that there was storage space under the seat!  Score!

Here is a close up of the material I used.

Basically I just removed the back and seat...painted the chair black...recovered and reattached...I then added polka dots...the biggest mistake being that I thought free handing the polka dots would be a great idea...3 hours later the polka dots were being cursed!  I had a great time and am SOOOO glad I joined Craftser... This site ROCKS! Smiley
