Poking around the furniture section of a local thrift store, I came across this 1977 Steelcase office chair. Even before I knew Steelcase was a name denoting quality, I could tell this was a well-built chair. Grungy as she was, her potential was clear. No repeat of that 70’s yellow for this one. I had already decided she would wear something much more festive! When I came across the aqua Polka Dots, the decision was made for me.

Before & After: drab to pizzazz!

Before & After: grunge to gorgeous!

Do you see her in different garb? What fabric would you like to see on this chair?
