Chair redo via a skirt!

after Katelyn was born. Cute. But I'm just not wearing it anymore.
 Don't you love the lining?! Yes, Gymboree for Women... not sure if there doing that anymore. 
I'm past the Gymboree years.  
The chair has seen better days. This is round two from the beginning of it's life (white with the butterflies... it was time for an update (that's Ginger our cocka-poo, she just had to be in the picture!)
I painted the whole chair black and then recovered the seat with the "fabric" from the skirt. 
This chair is for Sidney's room and we love how it turned out. 
Cost: $0, FREE (had the paint, had the skirt)
