So yesterday at Goodwill I managed to score a lamp, small book case, and a computer chair all for under $20. I didn't like the fabric on the computer chair, but it was exactly what I was looking for otherwise. I decided to recover it with black/silver glittery vinyl. I also had to replace the plastic handle piece end that makes it go up and down because whoever owned it before's dog decided to chomp it to death. I apologize for the crappy cell phone pics, but it was 2 in the morning and I didn't feel like running downstairs to grab my camera.

Behold, before:


and after:


The only thing that's wrong with it now is the bottom left corner of the plastic on the backrest is cracked and partially missing. You can't tell though so I don't mind. I also replaced the plastic lever end with a wooden bead painted pink but I couldn't get a good picture of it.

When I get a chance I'll upload some better pics with my real camera.

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

That's the most glam sewing chair I've ever seen.  I never would have thought of using vinyl, but it turned out really cool.

Good job!  Thats a huge improvement.  The vinyl looks great.

I am scared of using vinyl in case it splits and tears.  Was it difficult to work with?

It really wasn't that difficult. The only thing that scared me was having to use the staple gun....It scares the bejeebus out of me (And for good reason!). If you ever had to have your scalp stapled back together you would totally understand. Shocked  Embarrassed

It's beautiful...you did an awesome job!  I'm still trying to find a chair that's the right height.

That I can totally relate to!!  After my cesarean instead of the dissolving stitches that they once used, they took a staple gun to my abdomen!  The really scary part was watching the intern pull the staples out 3 days later...!! hahaha I am extra careful with my staplegun these days!
