{a swift change to a thift store chair}

before......and afterAll for $10! I already had the fabric (which I took from another chair I was working on...I cut the fabric too short for the first chair- oops!- so I'm glad it worked for this one!) and since the padding in the chair was still good, I just stapled right on top of the old stuff!

I don't want your soul to die, so here's my comment-

What brand is that fabric and where can I buy it? I need it or else a bit of my soul will die.

No pressure.

Love the blog, added you to my reader.
