Lately I've been thinking I need a different chair at my computer work station. Something vintage and curvy and velvety. The one I am currently using is an unpadded dining room table chair. And although I have plenty of padding for the both of us, it does get uncomfortable with all the hours I put in researching, blogging, listing, and marketing the vintage.
So I just happened to give Craig's List a quick look the other day -- can you believe I've never purchased anything off Craig's List before? -- and found this beauty for sale in the next town over.
Velvety? Not so much.
Ok, so it looks like a mouse or an anxious cat or some other creature had its way with the cushion.
But it was two dollars! And for two dollars, maybe I can give it a makeover.
Now I've never reupholstered anything before. So this will be interesting.
I don't think it will be that difficult, and it doesn't have to be perfect. All you need is some foam, a lovely piece of fabric, and plenty of staples in your staple gun, right?
I'm betting there are plenty of youtube videos around to instruct me. Of course, if you have any tips, please feel free to advise.
