Industrial Chic

Wow!  I've been working and working on projects but only have one to share with you today.  Not to long ago, I went to the Goodwill Outlet store and picked up this lonely little chair.

I had a moment of nostalgia and the price was right.  It reminded me of the chair my dad had in our garage when I was growing up.  My sister and I spend many hours pushing each other around in it and spinning ourselves silly! 

Well, I had many rounds trying to clean up about 20 years of dirt.  Finally, I thought what this chair needs is a little slipcover.  So, into my stash of fabric I dove.  After a few pins, a couple of cuts, and a few stitches,.....drum roll please........

Love to know what you think.  I'm sharing this over at:

  1. hi Julie - cute! Your title made me laugh as i've just posted one almost exactly the same, Check it out
    cheers Fiona

  2. I like it, and I know it's extra special since it reminds you of your childhood. I'll be making a slipcover for my own office chair soon. It's not old, but as much as I use it, it needs some TLC.

  3. Great job on your office chair! I have 2 of these that I need to ruffle up!

  4. This is great looking. I have one of those silly chairs and I think this cover is a awesome improvement. Thanks for sharing. Visiting and following via Frugalicious Friday.

  5. You've certainly inspired me to do-over my own office chair!! [and yes, I too remember playing on these when a child...see just how silly we walked after spinning around and around. LOL]
