The story of the "Office Chair". This little chair started out in a garage sale where my dear friend Jackie found her, Jackie cleaned her up and put a new seat cover on her and brought her to work to reside in her office for many, many years. The stories this little chair could tell, I think everyone at work has sat in this chair at one time or another to tell Jackie their woes (Jackie is a wonderful listener).
Jackie retired and the little "Office Chair" went to stay with my other sweet friend Shirley and to reside with her for many, many more years, until Shirley retired just a few weeks ago (I miss my friends).

As you can see the little "Office Chair" came home with me! and I could not help myself but to give her a new look!.
The first thing I did was take the seat off and remove the fabric, Jackie how many staples did you use? I was talking to you as I was removing them one by one. LOL.
Then I sanded her for what seemed to be forever and then I clued on four little flower medallions that I purchased from Lowes.
All sanded and ready to paint.
I used spray paint its much faster then the old paint brush.
And Wa-La here she is, with fresh paint and a new seat cover, that I made out of the left over drop cloth that I used for our bedroom curtains.
I sanded and distressed her to give her the vintage look.
Aww, but then I could not get Becky's slip chair covers out of my mind, we all know Becky from "Sweet Cottage Dreams" we love Becky. Well I just had to copy her, I mean borrow her idea (hehe).
I added pleats.
I also lined the inside. I love the new look of the little "Office Chair". She will have a new office to reside in here at home with us. It only seems fitting she stays in the office.
