It's brilliant, right? I mean-you can't really tell that it's a pillowcase-not even when you see the bunch of fabric hanging off the side of the chair. Granted, it did cover the off white cushion which was stained and overall in need of help, but still-a pillowcase? Not my best work.
Last week, I was determined to get this chair off my back and finished once and for all. So, after cleaning the local grocery outlet nearly completely out of snack food, we also went to the fabric outlet where I snagged a couple of remnants-one of which was destined for this chair. I went to work, ripping off the old beige fabric, only to uncover this 70's gem:
To find the foam underneath lacking in a little support and comfort. After getting all the velvet and staples out, it looked like this:
Okay, maybe I didn't get out all the staples, but close enough. I added a little batting to give it a little more softness:
Then, covered it in my cheap fabric remnant, so it looks like this now:
Not too shabby, for an old chair. And it only took about an hour or so (well 3 years plus an hour or so) to complete. And now the chair won't be giving me the evil eye every time I walk by.
