Yep, that's the one. I picked it up at the Goodwill for $4.99. I figured I would just reupholster it. Now, I have never done reupholstery so I signed up for a class via the local community college. The class description suggested to bring a foot stool to recover as the project for the class. I found a cute little cream vinyl covered vintage foot stool at an estate sale for a buck, so that was to be my 'learning' piece and then I would move onto the chair.
I found some upholstery fabric on sale for $1.95 a yard and bought 10 yards just to be safe and account for any mistakes along the way. I also purchased a few upholstery tool essentials (tack pull, staple gun, etc.). I was set and totally gung-ho for this project!
The footstool took me 2 class sessions plus a Saturday evening at home to complete. It turned out so cute! I think I am going to use it in the baby's room for storage.
We had 4 classes left so at the next session I drug the chair in. All of my classmates and the instructor were excited to see the shape of the chair and I couldn't wait to get started!
Come back tomorrow for part 2 where I will tell you the key to DIY reupholstery projects...
