My daughter and I are re-decorating her room.  We’re off to a great start with many new things, but today I wanted to share with you how we transformed a sad old card-table chair into a sassy pink and black desk chair.
We started with this:
Not a bad chair.  When I was in college, I studied in this chair. When I was in my thirties, this chair saw many a Bunko game.  Now in my 40s, this chair is my daughter’s desk chair.  And daughter is into pink.  Hot pink.  So this dated card table chair needed a facelift!
The back of the chair only had 3 screws holding the back in place, and the seat only had five screws.
Once the back and seat pieces were removed, I spray painted the chair hot pink.
When I took the screws out and moved the backing aside, it looked like this:
I used a screwdriver and pliers to remove the bajillion staples off the back:
It’s slow going because like I said there were a bajillion:
After I removed the old fabric, I cut a piece of the new fabric marking my measurements with chalk on the wrong side so I’d know where to cut.
Next I placed the back and the foam onto the fabric and stapled all the way around.  Honestly, this is where I turned over the project to my husband as my staple gun broke and he used an electric one to finish.
We used the same screws to put everything back together and now daughter has a hot pink desk chair.
