Craft Room Chair

For a while now, if I wanted to sew or journal at my desk in my craft room, I would drag one of my kitchen chairs into the room. This was starting to get annoying to me, because 1. it was extra work 2. the chair didn't match my craft room design & 3. I kept hitting the chair in the door frame.( Fact: I am Klutz)

So I went thrifting for a new chair last weekend, and ended up getting this baby for $2.50. OH YEAH!

BEFORE:



The first thing I did was sand some rough spots, and then painted it an off white - instead of a yellow white.



And then I had to put on a new cushion:



THE AFTER:

And that was all! Took me about an hour of work to get this:


 Yes this is my messy craft room, and my half finished shirt on my lovely body form (her name is Mandy - the body form, not the shirt).
