I got the chair FREE off CL. Used 1 yard of $6 fabric, a can of .99cent paint, hot glue sticks from Dollar Tree, cotton piping from a 550yd spool($5 thrift store purchase years ago, lifetime supply), free foam from a leather ottoman being thrown out.....Viola!

Great job! I have almost same chairs except front legs are square tapered down & fabric is velour, got them about 40 yrs ago. Still look new. Don't really use them but fill in space nicely. That really compliments the rest of room! You did beautiful job on piping & way you used that eye popping fabric. Enjoy! Jan

awesome job! great color scheme...are you going to look for a match??

suziq-92....I originally planned to look for a match, but didn't find anything "exact". So I purchased 2 off white leather club /theater chairs and I'll use this as an accent chair. I may make matching throw pillows with the left over fabric tho.....:0)
