Vintage Office Chair Redo

Do you recall that $10 vintage office chair I bought last summer at my favorite local thrift store? Here it is, basically left outside with a future in dumpsters.

I decided on a simple and affordable small black and white stripe from Premier Prints because my thrift chair needed a lot of work at the upholstery shop. And voila this is how it turned out,

Meet my $10 mid century office chair. Nice solid wood base on nickel casters, everything is in good working order, the wood even looks like it might be teak or something pretty and Danish looking. Worn–yes, sad—probably, hopeful–absolutely.

So my first instinct was black and white small vertical stripes. Then my next thought was some boldly colored velvet.
