My boyfriend had this almost comfortable desk chair, but only almost for two reasons:  one, the material was getting gross, it was really scratchy and faded out and quite ugly at that point; and two, the bottom cushion was completely falling off.  He wanted to just throw it away, but I said nu-uh.  A month later, i finally recovered it.  Whew! This thing has been sitting in my bedroom in these pieces being the bane of my existance:

And now, here's the new, soft, and clean chair:

Can you tell he likes it?

It was simple and quite easy but we were dorks and put it off for way too long.  I'm just way excited to have it finished that I had to share!  Thanks for lookin Smiley

Oh, wow, hey! It looks soft and nice, and very professional job! It's as though that scratchy version never existed, huh?
