Heavenlybean- I know exactly what you're talking about! I think it's called "Squint" or something like that. I had a board on Pinterest with inspiring reupholstering jobs, and that was a heavy influence. Aren't they just gorgeous?

Mink_Bikini- Oh, thank you! I promise you, it wasn't all that difficult. And this was my first *real* reupholstering job. I really was hesitant to change the original too, but I had a vision and pushed through my misgivings. Especially after I found that it was made of oak (or something equally as hard) originally, and had that nice metal stamp on the bottom. I thought "oh lord, what have I done?!". But I'm so in love with the "after" that I can't feel too remorseful about it. Wink

 I bought my husband a new office chair for xmas - and it's arleady cracked and looking really bad.  I wish I could do something like this for it but I don't think it would work Sad  Looks like those tacks were used and there is nowhere to tack on to on his chair.

I adore your chair though!  It's just fabulous!

Very professional!  I appreciate how well the fabric squares have that random feel, but their placement feels well coordinated so nothing stands out uncomfortably.  And I love the choice of fabric too - says fun, fun, fun!

Sewcrazyforever- you totally got it. I laid out all the squares and rearranged them to get a "accidental but comfortably organized" look. It was a lot of fun, actually. Smiley

Thank you! I think the overall feeling from this project was "see? Now that wasn't so hard, was it?"
