Office Chairs? Sure!

Anyone ever heard of geek chic? I only bought these babies as a donation for a new favorite non-profit agency. They needed some chairs for the office.


Just reeealy boring.

A girl does not buy this wall flower for the lines. But I went with the lines, and I bought this fabric at Jo-Annes:



And boring, right?



The black arms and legs really worked. I mean I really worked at distressing those arms and legs. And I was satisfied with how the wood came through with a low sheen of the satin black.

In the end, it worked. I think they'll add some punch to the boring office, but even better, the visitors will be comfy, and the chairs will last for a while.



So Donna, I hope this adds some spark to the waiting room. I suppose I could've pulled that fabric tighter on the upper, but (breathe) I need to let it go.

  4. love the fabric!! I saw it in Country Living last month and saved it in my inspiration file. They listed it at $15.90 per yard - was it cheaper at Jo-anns?

  6. YES- the fabric ended up being $6 a yard because it was on double clearance. Score. Actually truth be told, that was the main reason I bought the fab. 2 yards was needed to make the $2 chairs. Total cost: $16.
