So... here is another one, which was quite challenging. My stapler broke, my glue gun broke, my fingers bled... but I've made it. I wanted to use a really neat fabric with geographic prints, but they were stretchy so I had to strip it again. After that I've decided to just use a really vibrant color and ended up with this hot pink. (I've got another one of the chairs which will become a really cool green... but that's another story for the future)


Thanks for looking! Comments & criticisms are highly welcome.
