"Flower Power" Chair


While I was at a yard sale yesterday I found a really cute child's chair with horrible fabric on it. The lady wanted $3.00 but she took $2.00. Then when I put it in the car I remembered I had just bought some adorable fabric to use on the car seat, but now I changed my mind and decided to use this fabric on this new chair. Of course I was so excited to start this project that I didn't remember to take a "before" picture of the chair. But I did take a picture of the old material 
And yes it was very faded material. This took me about six hours to recover. It had about a million staples in it. {so now I have a really sore spot on my hand where I used the tool to dig out the staples} This took a while to do but felt so good when it was done and it was very easy to do too. There are even little rocking feet on the bottom.
Okay so here is the finished product.....

I love the way it turned out, now I can't wait for the Dormouse to start sitting in it.  Sorry I didn't get a picture of the before, I think it might have been more dramatic to see it before I changed the fabric.
