Roadkill Rescue: Chair

So, I was driving down the road and I saw this beauty sitting on the side of the road, ready for garbage pickup. What? This sweet little chair with awesome potential? Helloooo, someone needed to save her! So I promptly kicked the BF out of the car to go grab her, because I sure as heck wasn't going to be seen doing it! Actually, I was driving, so it was just easier for him to do it...or that's what I told him.
Isn't she great? I called my Mom soon after, I knew she'd be so proud of me! I knew exactly where I wanting to put the sweet thing, so I got to work on this super easy project. First I had to remove the one lonely arm by unscrewing it from the base. I took off the plasticy cover to see if the padding was still good on it, and luckily for me, it was! I cut the fabric a little bigger then the seat and stapled it to the bottom, making sure to fold the edges neatly.
Then, I took her outside and gave her a nice coat of Krylon Brown Leather spray paint.
So simple! But such a transformation!
Perfect! Now she really is a beauty!
