my computer chair was in a very sad state, with the fabric having a hole in it that was getting bigger and bigger, allowing the foam stuff underneath to be seen. Plus it wasn't a very nice fabric to begin with...i forgot to take a photo of it before...but here it is after.



bought too much fabric as i was worried about not having enough. i haven't decided what to make out of it yet...

Very pretty.  Great colors.  I love the damask print on the fabric.  Maybe you can cover a small box or container like a can with some of your leftover fabric to hold things like pens, pencils, etc on top of your desk.

What a great looking computer chair! I love your fabric choice, too!  Smiley
Way to extend the life of a chair!

On a related topic, where would you point someone to learn how to do such a work of art? Books? Tutes? I'm really open to any suggestions on the topic as I have a horribly ugly computer chair. Thanks!

Nice! You've inspired me; I have a very similar style chair and I hate the blue tweed that's on it presently. Me thinks I need to reupholster my own when we move (since we'll be doing the dining room chairs anyways!).

I think it's lovely.  Grin If you have enough fabric why get some heavy duty interfacing and make a little matching trash can or fabric bowl to toss adds and ends in.

hmm i'm not sure about books, but when i was going to cover my chair, i found a site that kinda described what to do. but i was trying to find it again for you just now, but haven't come across it. its really not too difficult though, this was the first time i'd ever done anything like that.. just need a staple gun Smiley

BeagleMommy, I was browsing one of my fav blogs, and found this... http://www.designspongeonline.com/2007/10/diy-wednesdays-office-chair-upgrade.html
which should be helpful to you if you are still planning on doing this. Its better than the tutorial I saw before I did my chair, as it didn't really have proper instructions. Smiley
