office chair makeover

So we are in a new apartment and I am on a mission to make things more home-y, starting with our eye-sore of an office. In about an hour's time and with less than a yard of fabric, our office chair transformed from this:

to this!

Big improvement, right? I found the instructions at Design*Sponge in the DIY section. I don't have a staple gun (really need one of those...) so I just used generous amounts of hot glue and it worked like a dream. Now if only I could do something about this carpet...

That is ADORABLE! Ok I have an office chair like that but it has a tall, wide back. I wonder if I can do the same thing...

It looks so cute. Thanks for sharing it!!

I'm totally sick of the "apartment look" too, so we're decorating a bit at a time. If we had an office, and an office chair, I'd recover it too :)

BTW, I did my own version of that birdie mobile. Check it out!

I honestly gasped when I scrolled down and saw the "after". I was casually scrolling, have lots of tabs open, and then *bam!* there's this beautiful computer chair. I was not anticipating that! It's wonderful! Quite an improvement!!!

Jill,
I just bought a chair on craigslist and I'm about to go to town. GREAT idea! You continue to be such a huge source of inspiration for me! And thanks for the tip about Design Sponge's DIY section... I had no idea there were so many great projects over there.
