Renovate Brooklyn: Office Chair Reupholstered!

A few weeks ago, I picked up an old, mid-century style office chair at a yard sale. The back was a little busted up, and the seat cushions were made of worn and grungy black leather, but with a $5.00 price tag, I thought it had lots of potential. And if not, I could roll it out to the curb without much heartbreak or money wasted, that was for sure!

I plotted to recover the seat, repair the broken frame, and then recover another chair in the kitchen in the same fabric so they created a lovely cohesive corner of my kitchen...

Well, done and done!

A little wood-putty and a bit of dark wood stain later, plus roughly one-and-a-half yards of this gorgeous fabric, and I've got two "new-to-me" chairs that are brightening up the home-office corner of my kitchen.

I'm contemplating using the remaining fabric to build two window valances for another little POP of color, but I guess I'll have to see how busy the weekend proves itself to be...
