Recovering A Chair

I have recovered my favorite old chair for the second time. I left the bright pink fabric underneath just in case I want to bring it back, but for now I wanted a softer look in my living room. I had leftover material (an old comforter) from my shabby chic ottoman project so I decided to use that, here is that project Shabby Chic Ottoman Project.
I simply removed the seat from the chair, laid it on my fabric and added about 4 inches all around, enough to be able to fold over the wood piece on the bottom. Use a staple gun to secure the fabric and just keep pulling the material as you work around the seat. I folded the corners and gathered them a little. This project took about 30 minutes from start to finish. My favorite part is that I can take off the material and return to my bright color when I get tired of the soft look.
