Upholstered Arm Chair

I reverted back to one of the 7 chairs I have sitting in the garage for this project(oh you're supposed to put cars in garages? hmm..). I decided to tackle one of the chairs that we got with this set.

I used a gorgeous fabric to make pillows back a couple months ago. Then, I loved it so much that I bought the same print in an upholstery fabric. It's Waverly, by the way. I used the upholstery fabric from their Sun&Shade collection. It's a little pricey at $16.99/yd., but when it's love, it's love. And really, I only needed enough for a chair cushion. Totally justifiable right? :) ...thought so.

So, without further adieu, here she is!
Can you believe that this chic little lady once looked like this?:And with a little primer:
And then with one coat of spraypaint:
(By the way, I'll never use a brush to paint a chair again. What took me 1/2 before, now takes 10 min. max. wish I'd known that with the dining set!)
Making the seat comfy:
Stapling:
Screw the seat back on, and I have myself a chair to match my pillows:(Ignore stark apartment walls!)

That's also the coffee table I painted a few months ago. I'm kind of on a roll.. I blame it on this.
