Thrift Chairs: Before and After

Here is the chair before I started work.  $10 each at a yard sale last year.  The lines were fantastic and fit into our mid-century mod house perfectly.  The fabric however. . . worn, dirty and fraying. 

Here's Chair #1 after I recovered it in about $75 worth of fabric.  I added a $1 thrifted pillow as accent.  This was a total no sew project, completed with a staple gun, carpet tacks, a mallet and a second pair of hands.  Total chair re-do cost far, far less than finding a similar, less sturdy "new" chair AND I got to customize my fabric choice with something I loved!

Next weekend we tackle #2.
