I bought it when we were still living in North Carolina for $5 at a yard sale.
It sat in the garage like this for months.
I acted excited about it...cuz I was...and removed all the nail head
trim and disassembled the pieces.
Then we moved to our current location...and it still sat in the garage.
In order to relieve my husband of the troublesome chair...and to try to inspire myself to recover it...
I put it in my craft room...and there it sat for months.
After a couple years, I just decided to paint the legs and cover it in
some blue upholstery material I had on hand.
When I actually did the project, it took an hour at best.
It plugs in and kicks those staples in right where I need them!
I just stretched the fabric over the cushions and rolled the edges so they wouldn't fray.
And then moved to the sides and back.
I just cut a piece of fabric to cover the front...
Yeah, staples only work in furniture that have wood structures.
Then I trimmed the excess material.
I just rolled the edge of a piece and staple it right over the piece that wrapped behind.
but it was fast.
And after 2 years of sitting, gathering dust, I was ready to be done!
You can see the obvious gathers since I didn't dart and fit the material.
And I can rest easy knowing it's not taking up any more
space in the garage or craft room!
