Digging through the storage room today, I found Mustard Man's old chair! Man, that little Ikea chair has been with us for a loooong time. He sure loved it! But it was pretty sad looking upon closer inspection, so I decided to do a quick polish.
Slapped on some paint (literally. There was slapping)
Cut up a black t-shirt that was already ripped and hand sewed it onto the old cover. This took forever since I was only pretending I had the time to do so, and had two very needy children tugging at me from every direction.
Then I put a sweet little flowery "Y" on it for Opalina Ballerina, who's real name starts with one.
Ta da! Not perfect, but definitely improved.
