So I was checking out this post from dink http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=267279.0 and decided my chair needed some love too!  It was an awful textured black that looked nasty no matter how much I cleaned it.  I scored some awesome furry cow print fabric with a wavy pattern to it about a year ago and thought it would be perfect!  Only one injury and it wasn't even from the staple gun!  Let me know what you think!   Smiley

Really, all I look forward to in a marriage is the engagement ring and the honeymoon. Oh, and I guess the hubby.

I just used a cream and brown pony print very similar to this as an accent fabric in a "vintage cowgirl pinup" themed bathroom.  I wish my fabric was furry, that would hae been awesone.

Fur makes everything just a little bit more awesome!  Cheesy

Ooohh.. Nice job! Love the print =)

My chair is in need of a makeover as well but It's like the one in the background of your pic. It has the arm rests & I'm afraid if I take it apart...I won't be able to get it back together.. lol. I don't have a backup so it is staying as is for now.

I love yours though.

That looks awesome!  I'm currently sitting in a chair that desperately needs repadded and recovered and then sent down to the basement to be my crafting chair, I just haven't found the right fabric yet.  I'm really just waiting for some neat fabric to turn up at the Goodwill because I'm too cheap to pay full price for by-the-yard at the fabric store.  Awesome job again, it looks really stunning!

Nice Smiley How do you get it to fit so snug to the seat though, cause I'd like to re-cover mine but I feel like there would be "air pockets" at the indented parts.
