     Nice recovering.   Just wondering if you sprayed with Scotchguard to help repel stains?  I did that to a few of my daughters light colored shirts and that was a good idea especially after Daddy gives chocolate ice cream Grin

I love what you did to that chair. Was it hard? I'm 4'6 & had a chair suited to me, but the cat's tore it up & the legs were falling off. I was thinking of reupholstering it, but ended up throwing it out. I would love to learn how to do this, did you use a book? This is really cool.

Little me I just googled and read for a few afternoons and watched a few youtube videos. It was a lot easier than I would have ever imagined, I think picking out the fabric was the hardest part. I do regret not getting a heavier weight fabric, I used quilting cotton and I think it will serve it's purpose but I can definitely see where upholstery stuff would have been better.
I took it apart carefully, marked the back of each piece with a marker and if it joined I put a big X so I know where I was connecting. When I was taking it apart I got nervous thinking I was going to junk it, but I didn't. I followed through and it went back together very easy actually.

Alicehakes, I did not think of that but thanks, I will pick some up and do it. Right now it's upstairs and they are not allowed to bring food/drink up there.

I love this! I want a grown-up chair in that fabric, too!  Cheesy
