Yay!!!  My first challenge entry.  A few years back our company got us all new office chairs, but since the old ones had seen better days, we got to take them home.  I have had this old one for some time and it has seen better days in home as well.  It is still functional though and there is no need to trash it.  I finally finished recovering the chair.

Before with a work in progress (since completed) covering a stain:


After:



And the trim to hide the rough edges of the fabric:


I used spray adhesive to get the fabric on the chair.  There are some imperfections, but overall I really love my "new" chair.

Comments welcome  Smiley

Thanks everyone Smiley

I found the fabric at Joann's on clearence.  Light blue is more my color, but green is my second favorite color and I really love the fabric.
