I bought my husband a new computer chair for Valentines day (romantic I know) because his old one was in a bit of disrepair. Actually that is an understatement.
Then of course my wheels started turning and I couldn't bring myself to throw the old one out when I just knew it could easily be turned into something just the right amount of tacky, clown-esq, and eccentric for my side of the office. After all,...it sure would be nice to get rid of that folding chair.
I spent $4.00 on clearance fabric at Walmart. I got really creative with batting and tape to reshape parts of the chair that were gone!!?? Then I covered it in that 'ragamuffin' style that has been floating around in the idea-o-sphere. I am quite pleased with the results. How nice to have a 'real' chair on my side of the office!!
