I gave this thrift store find a Galaxy makeover with my own hand made galaxy fabric and a little paint.

Step 1: See the video tutorial here or follow along below.

I really love this, Mark!

Thanks Alpine!

How did I miss this one!?? So cool...working on a few galaxy projects right now too! Love it! :)

FANTASTIC! I'm really not a fan of the build of the chair, but the fabric is phenomenal. I would love to take this brilliance and do a canopy with twinkling LEDs. My hat's off to you on a great, great project!

OMG I need a chair like this, there's a charity shop in my town centre has old chairs for £1.50 each. I just wish I had somewhere to put them :-(

I wish I could find chairs that cheap! I think you should make one anyway!

Looks like magician chair. One question i would like to ask out of curiosity. If i microwave wont that burn the cloth in center? And exactly how does it help

The heat sets the dye to make it permanent. The microwave, used at smaller amounts of time won't burn the fabric. I've been heat setting dye in the microwave for years now. Promise it won't burn the fabric.

I did not expect you to make the fabric too! So cool, thank you :)

I had fun making this chair. Love how easy it was to dye the fabric.

Space on everything please!
