My oldest DS has had this chair for 10 years now. I have never really liked the Winnie the Pooh fabric. I had it in the yard sale pile but my almost 3yr old DS kept telling me NO he likes it. So I decided to reupholster it.

BEFORE

GROSS!


AFTER





I wish I had in progress pics but my camera has been out to service 2ce in the last month. I ripped out the staples and saved the exsisting fabric as my guide (marked the back of each piece so I know what went where), including ripping all the stitching apart. I got nervous about putting it all back together but it actually was alot easier than I thought.

My original fabric choice was a green paisley but DH wasn't feeling it for both DS & DD. It was really hard trying to find something neutral for the both of them.

WHAT DO YOU THINK??

Thanks!
The fabric was from Joannes
There is also a pocket on the side which DS filled with all his favorite books in about 5 seconds.
 
Oh and it costs about $17 including fabric, foam & tacs

WHOA.  This is fabulous.  You did a great job -- it looks like a little boutique piece now.
Now I'm wishing I hadn't passed up that used toddler Pooh recliner offered on FreeCycle last week.  Undecided
