I finally got around to re-covering this old office chair we have had for years. You can get a glimpse of it's original look from the first picture. Yep, ugly! It was a little tricky without a pattern but not impossible. I picked up the fabric from Spotlight for $25 p/m and with my trusty staple gun completed the project over a few days. Now I am on the hunt for some trim to cover the staples on the back rest.
