I have desperately needed a chair to use to sit at my new craft desk.  I was lugging the computer chair back and forth across the room every time I needed to change locations!  I went in search of a cute chair and found this dingy little chair for $6 at Good Will.



After a little bit of love, here is my new chair!!

What a cute recover. It is always good to have an inspiring chair to sit in when you craft.

You really made it look like a million bucks!

Redoing chairs-- usually they're odd dining chairs I've either thrifted or helped myself to on bulk trash day-- are a favorite of mine. I haven't done a desk chair, though. I kind of wish I'd thought of it before having bought an actual desk chair.

I think the fabric you chose is perfect for the style chair.

I love this!  In fact, when I saw it on your blog a couple of weeks ago, I ran out to my garage and dragged in a ratty desk chair that we were going to throw out, and I took some "before" pictures, because I am inspired by you to re-cover it!  I can't wait to get it done and show off my "after" pictures!!
