So I loved the lines of this chair, but the vinyl/pleather HAD to go. Here are the before and after shots. You can read more about it on my blog.

After:
 

I also made a fun pillow for it (or for the couch or something, 'cause I guess it's a little matchy-matchy) using the circle tutorial here. Here's my very mod (yet very IKEA) desk chair modeling the pillow:

The fabric is from Amy Butler's Lotus collection; it's called "Lacework" and I either got it at Reprodepot or Hancock's of Paducah, can't remember which. I love it too. Cheesy

Haha, no, I didn't make the 4th leg. I had already taken it off before I remembered to take a "before" picture.
