I recently acquired an old chair from my late Grandmother's house.  It had been in her basement for quite awhile and it needed a lot of work, but after some cleaning and adding some new fabric it fits right into my living room. 
This echino fall 2011 print was great because the patchwork hides my poor sewing!

Nice redo - I really like that fabric you chose.  Makes it a whole new chair.  Cheesy

Thank you for your comments Smiley  I bought the fabric from an etsy seller.  I'll have to look up the shop.

Thank you!  It is holding up pretty well.  I wish I would have made the bottom cover just a little tighter.  It has loosened up a little with wear.
