I tackled my first upholstery job! Now, I know there were probably WAY more important things I should have done, BUT, in my defense:
a) This has been a long-standing project on my To-Do list (I'm talking years).
b) I was MOTIVATED to do it today--and I'm beginning to realize about myself, that if I don't do what I'm motivated to do, I tend to flop aimlessly around and do nothing of consequence.
c) It was in desperate need of attention. Safita has grown very attached to this chair and sits in it several times a day, but every time she does, the frame falls apart and the cloth sags through the broken seat support to the floor, and it's just a big mess. It was time to fix it before it became un-fixable.

Now, the old, mustardy yellow vinyl is a super-soft, lightly ribbed, soothing gray microfiber. The arms and legs of the chair are sturdy and don't fall apart when touched, and the seat doesn't sag! It's pretty amazing.
