    This is a chair I bought for my granddaughter at my
    local thrift store for $5.00. The chair was in good shape,
    but black is not very 'girlie'.
    My grandaughter picked pink fabric from my stash.
    And I made slip covers for her chair.
    I did have to buy a pkg. of elastic for $1.09.
    It's definitly 'girlie' now. LOL
    Heres a before & after photo.

    Good bargain - I bought that same chair for my sewing room and it was $29.95 plus tax at an office store.
