Made It Monday

I realize it is almost Tuesday, but I am officially back at work and am just getting to my computer. I am linking up with Tara again (and probably for the last time) for Made It Monday.

Remember here where I said I was going to recover my chair? I think some people thought that was my wasn't. I said I was going to. Well....I did!!!

Here is my chair before. Can we say UGLY???

I had a shower curtain that I was not using anymore, so after a wash and iron it was ready to go. I basically just followed this tutorial since my chair has a backing on it. I had a few mishaps in that I had to have the janitor to help me get that back off and once it was complete there were a few staples sticking out...OUCH so I removed them and hot glued. When all else fails, hot glue right? Here is the finished product.

I'm pretty happy with it. I have no idea why I didn't do it before!!!
