Battle/Challenge: March - UFO
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: 10 - UFO yellow!
Project Name: Updated Desk Chair
Project Page Link (if available): N/A
Brief Description: My ugly chair has been just that, ugly, for years. I'd purchased primer and the lime green paint some time ago but because of our lingering winter weather of random snow, rain, and lots of cold, I had to put this off. I'd also purchased hip new fabric for the seat cushion that was previously blue and filthy and would not match the new green color. Finally last week we had some afternoons of sunlight and I hauled the chair outside to sand/prime/then paint it. Voila! I finished the seat cushion last night. It has a yellow flower in the pattern... is that enough to count?? I am so glad this is finished, it looks much nicer at my desk now.

And after, looking fresh and hip for springtime:

gozer - That's the cutest monster!  He makes me so sad about my post-it book marks.  Cheesy
