A few posts ago, I told you I was working on a bunch of uber epic projects. So here ya go!
Uber epic project #1: chair restyle!!

We found this chair on curb week. (You know, the week when people throw out junk on their curbs? Yeah. That.) Mom, my sis and I were biking and saw this chair. We couldn't just pass it up! So my mom somehow managed to hook it over her handle bars and she biked home with it. :)
One more pic of the rusty, musty, torn-up ugliness, and then I shall tell you how we fixed it!
First I took the seat and back off. Then I spray painted it with primer, and then with shiny black paint.
Then I used this creepy looking tool to remove all the rusty staples.
Took off the cloth and old foam (this part stank. Whew-eee mustiness!)
The back and seat, ready for new foam!
Now for the fun part! Stapling! You have to make sure to pull the cloth extra tight on this step. NO WRINKLES!
Adding a bazillion staples. :)
After that was done, I took another piece and laid it over the staples on back. I folded the edges so it looked nice, pinned it in place, and then stapled that on! It made it look much neater. Mom and I did the same thing to the seat part, and then we screwed it back in place on the chair!
Ta-da! I love restyling. :)
