I tend to sit crosslegged on my chairs. The cheap computer chair didn't appreciate it:

So I borrowed my grandpa's electric stapler and recovered it with some awesome ikea fabric (I can't resist ikea fabric. I pretty much buy some with no goal in mind every time I go there!) I also removed the ugly plastic covering on the part holding the backrest up.

Modelled by the cutest little siamese kitten Shocked

Sadly the foam wasn't very thick and I didn't realise at first and... long story short, I have a new diy project: fill in the staple holes in my parquet flooring. Oops? Wink


I like penguins, stars, rainbows and blue.
If your project has any of these, don't be surprised to see me post in it! Cheesy

I have been dying to dry this with the chair in my craft room -- yours came out so well! I love the fabric that you chose.

And your kitty is just the sweetest little thing! Eeeep!!! Grin


I am on a mission to collect an ATC from every state in the U.S.! Would love to trade ATCs with anyone interested!

I love the fabric you used on your chair, great job on recovering.  Your kitty is just adorable too.

It looks great. I also use electric stupler for upholstery, much better than manual one.
