My New Chair!

This past year I was in a frenzy, having been accepted late into the college of my choice I was scrambling to find an off campus apartment. Once I checked that off my list my parents tried their best to find some  inexpensive furnishings for my new space.

While I was grateful for all of my furnishings, my dad, the engineer, bought an ever practical desk chair that was just so out of place with everything else in my room. So this summer I decided to spruce it up a bit, using some cheap materials!

To start I bought some great fabric at the local fabric store, I bought a yard or so and was able to use the excess for other projects. I also bought some pink ribbon, white acrylic paint and borrowed my dad's staple gun.

To start painted a few parts of the chair white, to make the color against black pop. I then measured the fabric on the seat of the chair, and used the staple gun to secure it in place.

Next I added a cute pink bow using ribbon, and a hot glue gun to make the first loop, then added the two loops of the bow section, and last hot glued the two strands that hang down. 
So here is the finished product! I was very happy with the result and can't wait to add it to my room!
