What a difference a little pretty fabric can make!

What a difference a little pretty fabric can make!


I picked up this chair for $4 at a thrift store. It had the original upholstery on it and let me tell you - it was disgusting! Most people probably didn't look twice at this thing, but something about it caught my eye and I grabbed it. The nasty, old material came off the seat quite easily and I had just enough of this beautiful, aqua colored fabric to cover it. I did some research on the company to find out that the chair had to have been manufactured between 1966 & 1977, so not quite as old as I was hoping, but still a neat chair!
