Another goodwill chair makeover

here is the before, only $2.99! 


and the after with fresh paint and fabric

I also made some pillow covers using the shower curtain fabric.  I got this idea from this post to use the holes that were for the shower curtain rings in place of button holes.  So after cutting to size and sewing on 3 sides then I just had to sew on the buttons, these were super quick to make!



this one I added a little trim to:
