My Zebra Chair

I have been reading up on my favorite decorating blogs and getting really inspired to craft. I love love love to take someone else's junk and turn into my treasure!! I have a few projects that I am chomping at the bit to get started on, but I thought I would post one of my last redos. It's a chair that I bought at a thrift store for $10. I restained it and recovered the seat cushion with $10 more worth of fabric. The worst part of the makeover was stripping off the awful, smelly gold velour!! It was worth it, though and I think it turned out quite nicely!! What do you think?

The chair looks great!

I enjoyed looking at your before and after pictures of your house. I adore the master bedroom.
