I just recently got this chair from Walmart for around 20$.  They are selling this at Delias for way more, so frugal me, grabbed the blue mushroom chair from Walmart.  However it doesn't match my room at all.  My room is purple.  Since I have no sewing skills.  I have no idea what to do with the chair.  Any ideas?

here is missy.   Grin

Hm. Add random tassle type...things....to the edges of the chair. Buy some fabric markers and colour on cool designs (to match your room of course), you might even want to spray paint the metal peices. I would throw on a decorative pillow, bring in more of that colour into your room to balance it out.
That's about all I can think of right now. Keep me updated.

You could always just throw a sheet or blanket over the blue.  If you used a sheet, you could even safety pin it to the underside so that it doesn't slip around.
I've got an Ikea chair that is super comfy (and cheap!), but didn't come in any color that would match my room, so that's what I did.
Otherwise, if you know how to knit or crochet, you could create a custom cover for it.
If you were really adventurous, you could go the Trading Spaces route and spray-paint it, but that's too daring for me.

It looks to me like it'd be an ideal first sewing project-really, it's just two big circles of fabric. If you'd be interested in step by step instructions, I can walk you through it.

I can just see it in plush purple velour with some pom-pom fringe! LOL!
