Inspired by Amanda's lovely Mad Men office chair makeover, I thought I'd finish the long-neglected task of recovering mine.
I don't have the heart to post the plebian original version, a boring burgundy chair that hung round grouching that it wanted to be in a call centre with its friends, discussing reality tv and the price of petrol.
I pulled the chair apart with my superhuman strength, tacked on some heavy cotton upholstery fabric, and clicked it together again. The frame holds the fabric taut. Ideally I should paint the black bits white, but I've run out of steam and doubt that anything would stick to the hard plastic. Maybe one day some of those busy guerilla knitters one hears of will happen along and sort out chair-leg covers for me in a dashing red and white stripe.
