my first reupholstery project

This week I took on my first reupholstery project. It was only a small seat cover, but hey, you have to start somewhere.

HILARIOUS! I HAVE THE SAME CHAIR!!! Seriously - bet you got yours for cheaper though. I got mine at a yard sale one day when I was walking with my daughter. Mine is still brown wood and the wicker on the back and seat is tan. I thought about spray painting it a different color but it looks good in our room for now. It doesn't have a cushion on the bottom but now with your inspiration I could add one if I wanted :) Good stuff!
