Wow, this is so cool. It's a completely different chair. Was it hard to do?

Thanks, Eloe!

I would say that it wasn't exactly hard to do the chair. I did mess up a little (cut the fabric too close and had to do a little patch job). But mostly it was just sand, prime, sand, paint, sand, reassemble, paint final coat.

I got me a staple gun, too!

great job on your chair! did you remove the vinyl first or did you just cover it with the fabric?

I took off the old vinyl first, and used it as a rough pattern for the new fabric.

That is gorgeous.  I would never have seen the potential in the 'before' chair.  Nice work.
