This is my new sewing chair. I got an ugly office chair and re-covered it. I love this fabric. Pink and circles! Hooray! Now if we can just finish the addition I'll have a place to put it. Wink



Here's the chair before:

That is lovely! I'll add 're-cover chair' to my crafting to-do list.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

I used about a yard of upholstery fabric. It wasn't too hard, but getting the chair apart was kind of a pain. It sort of snapped together, but yours may be different.
I thought about painting the plastic, but I haven't had much luck with that in the past... even with paints made for plastic.
