office chair makeover







Should you ever happen upon an ugly looking, but free office chair, have hope.  With a just a screwdriver, a staple gun, and some fabric on hand, it's the perfect candidate for a makeover.
 
In the midst of spring cleaning the spare bedroom I decided I could no longer live with the shabby-though-free office chair that Mike would sometimes use at the desk there.  It was one of those 'there's no better time than the present!' moments.  I rummaged through the fabric cupboard and came up with an Orla Kiely tablecloth that I found at Target a few years ago, grabbed a screwdriver and my staple gun, and set to work.  About an hour later it was done, and I got back to my spring cleaning.

  1. It looks great! What a transformation! I have an ugly office chair that I've been thinking of getting rid of and buying a new one. However, after seeing yours, I think I'll recover mine. It needs some additional padding but I bet I can fix that too! Thanks for the inspiration! Enjoy your "new" chair! :-D

  5. Well done! So impressive and such a shot in the arm to those of us considering, but not brave enough to go for it. Maybe now....
