We recently redid an old chair that didn't go with the rest of our furniture.



Here it is before (the seating cushion has already been removed in this pic):


We started by thoroughly sanding the chair and painting it in a light blue. We then covered the old seating cushion with some fabric from IKEA. We used a staple gun to do this




Here is our chair now - much brighter and really fun:

Boldly going where others have probably been.
