Chair Redo

Remember those awesome chairs that I got from the garage sale

 The funny thing is, it took a lot of work to get them!  The sellers were sitting on them when we went to the garage sale and several times I had to ask them to get off so I could check them out.  At one point, the second that I stopped touching one the lady put down her bag on it and sat down again.  :)

Here is one of them that I redid for my computer desk

This is how I did it
 First, I took off the seat of the chair.

Then I painted it an awesome aqua blue

For the seat, I got some cushion from Hobby Lobby.  I got a super thick one since I spend a lot of my time on the computer....  Then I found some cute fabric.

I put the cushion on to the seat and then wrapped it with the fabric.  Then I stapled it (lots of staples).

Then I screwed the seat back onto the chair.

I love the brightness of it!!  It really brightens up my room!

The back is fun too!

And I just love the fabric.

I love super easy and simple projects!!!  This one only took about 30 minutes and that was with drying!

I like how the chair turned out. You have inspired me to go to a garage sale and see what amazing things I can find
