I saw this old chair at Lifeline on Monday and something about it appealed to me. Certainly not its brown, stained fabric though.
Anyway, it was $8 so I bought it and stripped the brown covers off and pulled them apart to use as pattern pieces.
I picked out this blue fabric at Spotlight. It's canvas and was $16 a metre. I was looking for something a bit more neutral but my eye kept going back to this one.
Ta da! My funky chair all ready to go, for less than $40 (Ok, it's not super cheap but it's not too bad!)
I'm not sure if it's going to stay here, the colour is a bit much with everything else going on in here, colour-wise.
I can hear the female judge from The Renovators now - "You need to edit your room, Edwina"
Seeing as I tend to move furniture around constantly anyway, it can stay here for now until I get inspired to move it somewhere else.
