A Ruffled Skirt Office Chair

    My hobby room projects are getting done one by one. I changed the fabric on this office chair several weeks ago, but added the ruffled skirt to give it a little personality.

    Below is the chair when we were given it {free!}. It functioned well but the arms needed a good cleaning and the gray fabric doesn't fit in our home. I unscrewed the arms and gave them a good soapy scrub and they cleaned up well. I picked up some black denim with a bit of stretch in the fabric for $4 a metre. The seat and arms were unscrewed and upholstered with a staple gun. 
    The back of the chair would not unscrew easily so I made a bit of a slipcover and then used the staple gun to close it at the bottom.

    Part of making over my hobby room involves sorting through fabric and organizing my supplies. I also want to update a few things I already have. I decided to take the time to hem and gather a long strip of the fabric and hot glue it to the chair. This project cost less than $8. Not bad for a free chair.

    I will be linking to the following parties:
