Sam has been using this plain, worn out folding chair as a computer chair for three years. Besides it being ugly, I haven't had a good excuse to replace it since it works just fine. But I finally got around to fixing it up a bit! I can't believe that I didn't do it sooner! It was easy and cheap, and made a big difference.
First I just unscrewed the fabric pieces/plastic and cleaned the metal base. I did a few coats of super strong black spray paint that is made to adhere well to metal. I then wrapped/glued a cute canvas weight fabric around the old fabric pieces and reattached. Easy!
Much better, don't you think?
