I'm very excited! This is my first ever challenge!

The Back Story: It just so happened that I was planning on redoing an office chair when this challenge popped up. My mom called me and said they had bought my dad a new office chair. His blue one, although extremely comfortable was dusty (he sandblasts rocks) and grimey. I told her I'd take it! I happened to be going to Ft. Worth to visit my aunt. While out antiquing I happened across an entire bold (about 4 yards) of this fabric for 10 bucks! Heck yea! It goes PERFECT in my sewing room!

So, Voila, The Ric Rac-ish chair:


The Before:


And more detailed after shots:






I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!!  Grin
