My dad was walking with his dog, when he found an old desk chair. He brought it home and my mom was laughing with him Roll Eyes. He didn't knew anything about this challenge and he asked me whether I could do anything with it. Sure! I was looking for days to find the perfect chair to participate. Sometimes I am so lucky  Grin


Here is the ugly and dull before with cat  Smiley





And after, with a little bit of sunshine  Wink....







A nice detail shot (I handsewed the whole thing  Lips sealed)



And how the chair is in my unfinished craftroom (Yes I made it so that it would match my 'painting')





Thanks to Craftster who keeps me busy from time to time  Grin

Wow! There really was a cute chair underneath the original ugly fabric. I love the two-tone color scheme you chose. Great job!
