Finally got the hideous 70's herculon chairs done.  Gone from Junky to Swanky and modern, looking good with the tripod lamp.

Oooh love it, gorgeous, I'm way too chicken to try my hand at Upholstery. Great job.

Did you change up the tripod lamp too?

Thanks for the compliments.  You can do it, start with something simply made. 

I made the lamp from an old tripod.

The shape of the chairs is fantastic and you did a great job recovering. The tripod lamp is pretty cool too.

I love the fabric you used and the piping really makes them look professional. Very nice.
