Before and After: $4.99 Goodwill Chair Upholstery Demo

Remember the stress of doing a demonstration speech in Speech 101? Reupholstering this chair in front of a classroom full of interior design students gave me the opportunity to sweat through this lovely experience one more time. Cutting foam, adding natural cotton batting (very fluffy and clumpy), and upholstering this mod side chair in front of a young, design hungry group made me vow to get better at these demos so I might take this show on the road. See what you think. created at: 2009-09-24

Rewebbed, new foam, natural batting and a classic Eames fabric smarten up this side chair.

So cute!!! I am looking for something similar for my home office....

That's still the $4.99 price tag on the back just to prove it was a super bargain.

Thanks so much. The lines of the chair are just what I love.

I thought you did a great job in front of all us fabulous design students!  Everyone really enjoyed your presentation--I didn't even realize how wrong I was doing this before!  I hope we can see more from you :)  

Oh, and the chair looks fabulous!

Cute! Love the fabrics you chose for the cover and pillow and that you didn't paint the wood!
