This is a nifty chair that I saved from the curb! it was very sad and the old vinyl was ripped, a hole was 'fixed' with ducktape and cotton balls (sounds like I had done it).
Here is how i recovered it
*I found fun fabric and some silk flowers
*i used iron on Vinyl (heat and Bond) to cover the fabric and flower combo.
*i took the chair apart and spray painted it.
*i recovered the seat, added more foam and batting and tada!!!
With the seat up!
Even my kitty likes it!
