Before and After: "New" Chair
This chair has followed me around for sometime. It had a home in my first classroom and my first apartment, but lately was in hiding as it needed some serious updating. The red stripes just scream dorm room a little too loudly for my taste these days. Never fear, though...the Great White Bolt to the rescue!
Although I didn't include a tutorial as I'm not sure how many of you own the $10 Urban Outfitter chair that was on clearance six years ago, I will say doing a simple recover like this is worth your time and money. Sure, my stitches aren't perfect...but it looks pretty fantastic for $5 of velcro and thread.
|A bit young and dated...not to mention scratched up by Calla|
|In its black underwear! (Which was much too scratchy to use by itself.)|
|Oh and remember this?|
|It was made for this!|
|Clean and white...who doesn't love that?|
Oh and that adorable white ottoman I found at a thrift shop boutique (you do know those exist, right?) for a mere $12. It even opens to reveal secret storage.
