Ten Minute Chair Re-do

6:00:00 AM

"Ten Minute Update"
Here is a quick way to update an old chair...

This little chair needs a face lift....

I took off the seat and popped on a new cover...

Got the image from the Graphics Fairy...
(ok, more than 10 minutes if I didn't already have the transferred fabric)

 Then I added a little gray wool trim to finish it off...

 Much better! Don't ya think?
Now it holds my alarm clock next to my bed!
