A project that was under $60.00 and was fun.
Found a $20.00 chair off Craigslist.
$10.00 bucks for gas
$15.00 blanket from Walmart
$3.50 for glue sticks for glue gun
$3.00 on hardware form Homedepot
I dig it. I had a chair like that my first year of teaching. Not as fuzzy, though. Nor as awesome. Great work. <br /><br />How is the hot glue holding up to all the sitting and swiveling?

Any desire to keep this one, in that case? I checked out your other one and it's even awesomer. Great instructions and pics.<br /><br />Let me know if you'd like an admin to remove this project. Or just flag it as incomplete. (the little flag icon in the top right next to the facebook/twitter/favorite icons....)
Well i submitted this one into the gorilla glue contest, then figured out how to upload and do steps, but couldnt enter the contest witht hat one.
Let me see if I can fix that for you.
Well I originally did a quick wrap of the back rest and two armrest with an old XXL t-shirt. I had that on for about two weeks. The t-shirt held up awesome. So I decided to take it another step. The new fabric is holding up awesome, no problems at all. I did use around 10 6&quot; glue sticks (most of them were used on the arm rest). I am still thinking of sewing buttons through the seat to get that nice look and add a little more strength so the fabric wont stretch, but I really haven&rsquo;t had a problem with the fabric stretching.
