Made it Monday #7


Today is Monday!  So I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It #7!


This is going to be a sweet and to the point post because I am not feeling the best today.  I think I may need to go to the doctor's.  

Anyways, here is my chair before.

 I didn't realize how gross this chair was until I looked at the picture of it.  Eww!!  Well, this color of blue was not going to match my room so I needed to do a chair makeover.  I actually have two of these chairs so it was 2 makeovers.

Here is the after.

 And the other one.

I am pretty sure now everyone at my school will want to do this.  What have you been working on?

  2. I wis we could do this to our chairs but they are school property and they simple would not allow it! We only get one office chair too. It looks fab though!

  7. Those chairs look great! I got rid of my desk a few years ago along with the large outdated rolling chair...your post makes me want to scour the halls to see if anyone wants to get rid of their teacher chair! :)
    Hope you feel better! Doesn't our body understand that it is NOT okay to be sick in the summer?!?

    1. Thanks. I feel a tad better today after getting some medicine. Hopefully tomorrow will be even better. I got the polka dot fabric from Wal-Mart. It is super easy to change them.

  34. Hi April - I so need to do this! As you know I made the 6 seat crates...but HOW do you go about covering this...sewing or staple gun. Fill me in. :o) If it's not too hard maybe I will work on it next week. Hope you feel better soon.
