Office Makeover - Part 2

Remember the office?

Yeah, so today I felt really encouraged by fellow blogger Mrs. Rauth to actually do the things that she suggested. So I present to you the before and after office chair.

Before - black metal chair with narrow blue & white stripe fabric

Stage 2 - spray paint chair in high gloss paint

Stage 3 - cover chair cushion in bold navy & white stripe fabric

Next up - create a cute monitor cover from baby blue or white fabric. Stay tuned for further details :)

Oh yeah and we finally hung the ships wheel that has been floating around our house for the past ten months with no place to go. It is a really cool piece. It was salvaged from a chinese ship that sank in the early 1900's. Finally it has a home! Jeremy was a dear and hung the pics too. I love that handyman :)

I am thinking that the chairs just need one bolster pillow a piece. Maybe in my bold stripe fabic again...I don't really know. If you have any suggestions - I would love to hear em.

nice work chika! i love the bright chair and new chair pad...perfect for your room! and your reading corner...i'll bring a book! =) the wheel looks great over those chairs. i like the two lighter striped pillows on each chair...colors and look are the same but the slightly different fabric adds some more charm to the room.
