Anna’s craigslist chair makeover comes with a warning: “This was my first time ever reupholstering a piece of furniture, and BOY was it a lot more time consuming than I realized!” But worth it, Anna. So so worth it.

From Anna:

I don’t even know how many hours I put into this chair–not to mention the definite blood, sweat, and even a few tears. I purchased the fabric at Joann’s for about $50, but other than a sewing machine, a heavy-duty stapler, and some elbow grease, that’s all this project required. I used the existing foam for the cushion as well as the interior webbing. The wood is in beautiful condition, but if anyone has any tips for polishing the brass caps on the feet I’d greatly appreciate it. And now that it’s finally finished, I can bask in all its Mid-Century glory!
