$5.00 flea market chair
If you aren't addicted drop cloths yet, maybe this chair will inspire you. (drop cloth that measures 4x5 at your local home improvement store for around $5.00) come on....i know you want to make something with this stuff! I've made a few pillows too. see HERE and HERE.
lets talk about my little chair. (perfect for a desk)
have you all seen a chair this gross? i wouldn't even let my dog sniff the seat. LOL
i still might paint the chair, but for now the wood is in really good shape. all you do is remove the screws from the underside of the seat. there were 4 total.
i guess they trust their screws. ;)
now is the fun part. you pick out your fabric OR drop cloth and cut a piece large enough to wrap over batting that is your cushion.
don't forget to put a bunch of batting (or you can do foam) so your seat is padded again.
line up your fabric nicely and staple the fabric to the wood seat with your hubbys heavy duty staple gun.
YOUR DONE....VOILA....THATS IT!

I have a bench in garage that is headed for my upcoming garage sale. If you were closer - I'd let you have it.
After my g-sale I have LOTS of drop cloths laying around. Thinking of getting the guts to do my couch and love downstairs but think I might start smaller with chairs like these and some pillows. Fun redo! Great job, love the stripes!
You are too funny! Love the "new" chair!
Hi, Bobbi! I'm admiring all your creative projects here so can you join us at the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop? Hope to see you there :)
If you don't find a bench consider using a sturdy coffee table.
