I picked up the hideous brown chair at Goodwill for $15. It is pretty comfy, just pretty ugly.
I went to the fabric store and picked up about seven yards of fabric to recover the chair and fashion a slipcover of sorts. I bought the gray fabric on an awesome sale and paid about $30 for all seven yards. So that makes what I spent on the chair a whopping $45. Don't ask me how I fashioned this "slipcover" - I did not use a sewing machine - I used a mix of cutting, stuffing in cracks, fabric glue and pins. It wasn't the most conventional way to slipcover a chair but it works! You may have seen the chair before on the blog. It is the perfect place to take Brecken's monthly photos.
