You see before you what was a most sorry looking office chair this morning.
It cost me a small fortune a few years ago when I set up freelance, but it was worth it because it has all sorts of nifty ergonomic little tricks, including a pump up lumbar support and spring loaded arms that extend so you can hover right above the keyboard and still be supported.
Anyway, expensive and ergonomic it may be, but it's also looking decidedly shabby and not in a chic way.
So the order of this morning was an attempt to recover it with some of the Amy Butler fabric I found a few months ago. It started well for the seat but then descended into chaos for the back rest. The seat came off fine but I just couldn't get the back off, even with a long screwdriver, pliers, tyre iron and a frenzy of swearing, so settled for pulling back the plastic frame, stapling it to the side against the wooden base of the back rest and tucking the excess out of sight.
I don't think it looks too bad. I still have the neck rest to do, but I'll do that next weekend.
What do you think?
