So I scooped it up with one hand and lugged it the few blocks home. It sat in my basement for a while before I was able to give it some attention but I think the end result was well worth the wait and the sore arm from carrying it home. I needed to do this chair for next to nothing so I was patient and faithfully checked the remnant section of my local discount fabric store until I found something I loved at a price I could manage. I finally stumbled across some fabric that was exactly what I was looking for &mdash and only $1.99 a yard. Because I had all the tools and most of the other materials on hand, I was able to do this whole project for less than $10.
I was able to manage the whole project without any sewing, which might have been even more exciting to me than the steal I got on the fabric since sewing is not my strength. I love the end result and the way it looks in the space. It is a great size for my small apartment and you can't beat the price! Images: Kate Wangsgard
