For now, though: my sewing chair reeeeally needed an update. I re-covered the back of it when I brought it home from the as-is bin at Ikea, waaaaay back in October of 2011. The back fabric was still okay (aside from a couple of holes), but the seat had never been recovered, and it had definitely seen better days. It was covered with paint and loose threads, and the fabric had been worn shiny in a couple of large, butt-cheek-shaped spots.
|Oh, also? It was...beige. So office-y.|
Is that not some crazy grandma-riffic fabric? Hee. I've had this (printed, drapery-weight, cotton) fabric sitting in a bin for a couple of years, and though it's pretty horrible, I couldn't bring myself to get rid of it. It's BLUE! Like 90% of my stuff is blue. And it's fun-horrible, tee-hee.
The whole slipcover project only took me about an hour.
That was after an hour of ripping four years' worth of sewing detritus from inside the wheels. It rolls again! Yay! Ew.
