DIY Your Own Star Trek Bridge Chair

Think of the Burke 115 chair as the cousin to the more traditional favorite, the Saarinen Tulip Chair. Similar in shape, but sporting a different base and slightly different back, this chair is a perfect candidate for a makeover — Star Trek style!

We found full step by step photos and ideas behind converting your Burke 115 chair into those seen on the bridge of the Star Trek Enterprise. When watching the show, the chairs aren't something you really think about, but once you start looking at them, it's all you can see! Burke 115's are often found on Craigslist and in your local Antique stores, even if they have a higher price tag on them, most sellers can be talked down and your Federation furniture creating can begin!
