Office chair reupholster issues

My awful green office chair

I have an old office chair that I have a love-hate relationship with.

My awful green office chair

I hate the awful green (going to recover it one day in Florence Broadhurst’s yellow bamboo fabric) but it’s so comfortable and handy for me to move from supplies cabinet to desk without getting up. These chairs are not easy to pull apart to recover! No screws, no idea how it’s all put together! Anyone with ideas?

While scouring the net for some advice, I stumbled on Melodie Nelson‘s blog entry on Curbly. She has an awesome step-by-step on how she reupholstered an Eero Saarinen Executive Chair (Knoll International), taking it from bleh to wow.

The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
