One of my friends was looking at my blog the other day & said "where's your funky zebra chair?" I did this chair almost a year ago, in fact it was my first chair that I ever did. I wasn't going to put it on my blog since I didn't take a before picture but my friend convinced me that I should anyway. Anyway......I had been seeing a lot of cool animal print chairs & wanted one but they were always too expensive. So since I'm cheap I decided that I would just have to make one. I found a chair at a local thrift shop & then hunted for some fabric that I liked. The chair screamed the 80's--it was a honey gold oak color with a nasty gold & orange print fabric. It was ugly. First I painted the chair black, beat it up a little bit-(always fun:) and then re-covered it. Wasn't too hard- I just used my handy-dandy staple gun.
I still like this chair a lot...it appeals to my "wild side" :)
