What Have I lolified?

I found this lovely chair at Goodwill for $15. Since I am a classic lolita at heart, I've always been on the lookout for classic furniture and this find made me very happy. It was very lovely as it is. Only one problem though....
 

It was FILTHY!
  





My only options were either try to remove the stains or to re-upholster the thing. I've never done upholstering before but hey, there's a first for eveything.

and the end result! Everyone in my house thought I was nuts to ruin something that was perfectly ok. It's nice to prove them wrong.
    





Project cost

Chair $15
Fabric $9 (on sale)
Paint $5
Staples $2

Total = $31
Not bad for someone who had no idea what she was doing ^_^.!

Thanks for looking!
