I love brown and cream together.  I'm adding brown into my wedding (as accents) because I love it so.  Good job  Grin

Wow! You managed to make an ugly computer chair into a chair that almost looks like... antique! (almost because of the wheels Wink ) I love the "wood and linen" look.
How did you do the fabric? did you just wedge it under the plastic, or...? (I have the same chair just about, and while I'm too lazy to make it as nice as yours, I'm still curious!)

I like penguins, stars, rainbows and blue.
If your project has any of these, don't be surprised to see me post in it! Cheesy

Yea i took a flathead screwdriver and poped the plastic off to rip the old fabric off and restapeld the new stuff on the wood inside.
here's some pics:

this is the bottom piece. when you poped it out the fabirc is stapled to a board.
once i restaped the fabric i wanted i wedged it back under the plastic. i'll warn you that to take it in or out is really tricky without cracking the plastic. i cracked mine but hot glued it and once it's painted over its not so bad.
here's the pieces from the front:
