Beyond The Picket Fence: My Pre-Garage Working Routine I do the same thing to get me rolling on projects! This is a definite idea for adding a little plush to that antique desk chair I was in a quandary over! Yay!

    Are there any directions on how to do the chair?

    Hi Lisa, There does not appear to be any instructions I can find. I planned on cutting out a print from a coffee bean bag, they are available on line. Cut out your desired shape from newspaper or craft paper for a pattern and cut your coffee print from this. Pick up some upholstery tacks from JoAnn's or hardware store, you will need a small amount of batting, also available at JoAnn's or craft store. Cut your batting a little smaller than your coffee bag shape, then grab your hammer and tack it down, tucking in the batting as you go. I would start out top, bottom, left, right and fill in from there dividing the space equally so my tacks are evenly spaced, eyeball or measure here. As for the ruffle trim, Hobby lobby has great burlap ribbon you can use for this or ruffling sold at the fabric shop, again hammering in upholstery tacks as you go, start on one end and go around the edge of the chair, spacing tacks evenly. Be sure to fold back the ends of the ruffle on each side so exposed unfinished ends are tucked away, 1/2" will do. It appears to me that the padded portion of the chair has not been hemmed, so leaving rough edges exposed. You may want to run a small bead of glue around to hold the edges down. I have not completed this project but just trying to give steps as to how I would accomplish this task. Hope it helps. :)
