Before and After: A Tacky Chair Gets an Update

The other week, I asked you what projects you were working on, and I've got to say, you are all some busy bees.

I used Amy Butler Nigella fabric for the chair. This project took a little more time than I expected, since the back rest had a ton of staples in it.

I think the difference is really inspiring, and the monetary investment was so small: between the fabric and chair, I spent less than $10. Now that's certainly a way to go beautiful on a budget.
