Before and After: Chair

One of the courses I'm taking this semester is an upholstery class. For this class, I had to come up with a piece that fit the following criteria:

--It had to be easy to recover.
--It had to be easy to transport.
--It had to fit in my car.
--It had to look cool in the house
--It had to be VERY affordable.

For that, I chose this chair:

There was only one thing wrong with it. It was beige. Boring, boring beige. This wouldn't work with my decor.

This is the finished product. Big improvement...HUGE!

This was my inspiration piece. The above photo was "borrowed" from

Now, I have to find another project for the rest of the semester. Hmmm...back to the consignment shop!

Ummmm...that would look REALLY good in my living room!

Thank you, Christopher! I'm quite proud of it. Although, being that it is my first upholstering project, it's not perfect. I know where all the flaws are.

BTW, I have about 1 1/2 yards of extra fabric left if you want it.
