My family has just moved into a new house, so I went thrifting for some furniture for my room. I nabbed this cool office chair for $10, but the fabric was dirty, old, and an ugly poop yellow color. It had to go.

Before:


After:

(Sorry for the horrible cellphone pictures. We haven't unpacked the camera yet.)

This was my first reupholster, and it's not perfect, but I'm really happy with the result. Smiley

Thanks for looking! Smiley

That is an amazing transformation!   It was so ugly before that I couldn't appreciate what great lines it has - but in the after shot - it's beautiful!
