Here is a before picture. I forgot to take it before I started taking it apart. I bought this chair for 9.00 at the thrift store. Pretty sad...
The chair was in pretty good shape as far as functioning, but it was really dirty! As you can see I took it all apart using an electric drill and a crowbar! Ha ha! No seriously. The back kind of pops off, but it was super tight! I purchased my "hounds tooth" fabric at Hobby Lobby and used my 40 percent off coupon! I got 1.5 yards, I did have some left. I was just sort of eyeballing it. Depending on your fabric choice, you need to make sure you have enough to keep the pattern going in the same direction. All total it was about $15.00.
I was thinking I might have to paint the black parts, but I just cleaned it up with 409 and then shined it up with some "son of a gun" I really enjoyed this quick and inexpensive project! $25.00 not bad!

I came across an old pier being dismantled, the owner was going to burn all that wood!!! I told him I wanted all of it! So I have been working like crazy to come up with some new projects! Most of them use my charcoal pencil technique for the lettering. The other stuff comes from my pile of salvaged treasures!!!
