I purchased this chair at a sale close to home. I tore strips of chenille fabric and wove it between the metal bars. Then I made a cushion for the seat. Next I sewed some fabric on the front of the cushion to dress it up a bit. Finally, I took a pillow I had made earlier and set it towards the back of the chair for extra comfort. I have this chair at school and I told the kids I would give it away at the end of the year to someone who has tried extra hard in my classes. Pretty smart, arn't I ?!
