Say Goodbye to Brown Vinyl

Many years ago in Atlanta, I found a pair of brown chairs at the Salvation Army. I got two chairs for $10. I had every intention of sprucing them up, but you know how life goes on. Then about 6 months ago I bought a bolt of fabric from Home Fabrics for $1/yard. I knew they were going to go on the chairs.

Yeah, it is a boring brown chair. And after a month of it being halfway done in the garage, much to the chagrin of my husband, I finished!


Look at the back too. Sleek and stylish, right?

Now you can feel free to slather me with praise. It was actually quite shockingly easy to execute once I came up with a game plan and an electric staple gun. Boy, that sure makes it a breeze to finish.

I just love it without the arms. It looks modern. I chose a neutral fabric because I really didn't know where I wanted to put it and I didn't want to paint myself into a corner.

I think this is going to make a great time out chair for Eli.
