Apartment Overhaul, part II

Desk Chair Reupholstery

Ta-da! My office chair has officially been beautified. I totally love it. The whole process of reupholstering took about two hours, and was pretty straightforward. I used a very heavy canvas fabric from the As-Is IKEA bin (it was originally meant to be a curtain), so I think it will stand some level of wear fairly well. To figure out what to do, I just googled "how to reupholster office chair" and checked out some of the many tutorials out there. I did hit my finger with my hammer by accident (for the first time in my life!) and, let me tell you - ouch.

Good Job! What an improvement on the chair, and so much more personalized. I worked on recoverin my dining room chairs this weekend. It's so satisfying to make a smallish-biggish change like that.

Nicely done. Why on earth I never thought of doing that when I had a manky second hand office chair, I'll never know. Next time, next time...
