This picture is very flattering considering the true condition of the fabric.
Honestly the chair and fabric sat for weeks as I procrastinated on the project. Realizing I was running out of time I knew I had to get on it. Helping to take on the challenge, my dear friend, Caitlin stepped up to the plate. And in one weekend we got the chair ready to glide in style.
The arms had batting we reused and extra padding sew into the fabric.
I guess the manufacturer protects cushions by wrapping them in plastic.
Since this is for a baby's room, we kept the protective plastic!
One of the hardest challenges was learning how to attach heavy duty snaps. Turns out its the one thing you can't find a video for online! We finally figured it out by the basic photos on the box and a video about leather work, ha!
Now my chair proudly sits and it ready for anyone to take it for a test drive. You just need to maneuver around all the other baby stuff that stills needs organizing!
In the end I think I spent about $100 to $120 on my remodeling project.
What do you think?
