vintage office chair re-do

i found this chair at a local goodwill and after trying to sell “as is”, i decided to make it my first REAL re-upholstery job. i’ve done tons of kitchen chairs, but nothing like this.

i must say, i know it’s not perfect, but i’m pretty proud of my gung-ho attitude!

After!

i probably shouldn’t say all this, but..the chair cost me $4 and the fabric i found for $2.80/yard!! minus the staples i used and the labor time, this chair cost me $11

    That really is amazing. I have a chair I want to upholster and I’m feeling the same way you probably did starting out…can I really do this…and make it look good?!

    Yours turned out perfect! Good luck selling it!
