Recovered Chair

Last spring I purchased a cute little yellow chair from a sweet lady on craigslist. Her mother had passed away and she was having an estate sale. She said the chair had hardly been sat in, really just used for a bedroom. So I snatched it up for $50 and had ideas of recovering it for my classroom. Well I finally got to it this last week and love the way it turned out.

Here is the little chair, already it was pretty cute but I teach Kindergarten and have an impulse to make everything super colorful.

I bought 4 yards of this fabric from and 4 of the chevron to use for another project for my Mom, but I sneaked some in here. As for the piping, I bought that fabric at Joann's to use to cover two of my bulletin boards, but snipped off an inch from the bottom to tie it into the chair.

After several hours of cutting and sewing and adding zippers to the back, I came up with this.

I really love it, and cant wait to use it this year, I do have to remember that I can't get all Ross (MY SANDWICH) if it gets a stain or a kid stands on it. 


Have a great week!!
